Alaska Reference Database

The Alaska Reference Database originated as the standalone Alaska Fire Effects Reference Database, a ProCite reference database maintained by former BLM-Alaska Fire Service Fire Ecologist Randi Jandt. It was expanded under a Joint Fire Science Program grant for the FIREHouse project (The Northwest and Alaska Fire Research Clearinghouse). It is now maintained by the Alaska Fire Science Consortium and FRAMES, and is hosted through the FRAMES Resource Catalog. The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Tropical forest felling can be for the purpose of traditional shifting cultivation, after which forest is re-established, or for permanent land-use change, which is defined as deforestation. Recent decades have seen a dramatic increase in tropical...

We examined short-term (decadal) and long-term (millenial) processes of peat accumulation, and the links between them, in a Sphagnum bog in continental Canada. A previously published model of bog growth was fitted to age profiles of the oxic acrotelm (...

The desert/grassland biome transition zone in central New Mexico provides an important region for testing species differences to changing environmental conditions and various land management practices. Interactions of black grama (Bouteloua eripoda)...

Sructural changes in lignocellulosic biomass heated under conitions comparable to those encountered in several types of natural or planned burnings have been studied by solid-state 13C- and 15N-CPMAS NMR spectroscopy of 15N-MNR spectra of biomass...

Through a review of literature, the essential role of fire in the boreal forest as a natural regulatory agent of composition and succession is discussed in terms of plants, soils, and animals. In natural, long-term cycles, the incidence of lightning-...

The Carbon Budget Model of the Canadian Forest Sector (CBM-CFS2) is a national-scale model of forest sector carbon (C) pools and fluxes. This model has been applied to conduct a retrospective analysis of the C budget of the forests of British Columbia...

Some soils with permafrost thawed deeply and become drier after forest fires, while others changed little. Soils with permafrost on the coldest and wettest landscape positions (concave to plane, lower slope positions, and north-facing midslopes)...

One of the greatest challenges in global-change research is to predict the future distribution of vegetation. Most models of vegetation change predict either the response of a patch of present vegetation to climatic change or the future equilibrium...
