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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

In order to define the fire regime in Kenai NWR black spruce forests, a detailed fire and climate history study was undertaken. Utilizing techniques of dendrochronology I dated fire scars, and dated the outer-rings of fire-killed trees (burn poles)...

From introduction: 'Fire is the most important disturbance agent in the boreal forest. Fire shapes vegetation complexes, resets successional pathways, creates wildlife habitat, and increasingly poses a threat to urban areas particularly along the...

Fourteen existing published and unpublished fire history (or stand age) tree-ring datasets were compiled into the Alaska Fire History Database. For each of the plots in the database, fire dates, possible fire dates, and tree establishment dates were...

Several studies have noted a relationship between vegetation type and fire frequency, yet despite the importance of ecosystem processes such as fire the long-term relationships between disturbance, climate and vegetation type are incompletely...

Three data-intensive studies were conducted to examine the fire history of the Kenai Peninsula on three different time scales. The Kenai Peninsula has two distinct fire regimes: a high frequency regime in black spruce (Picea mariana) and a low...
