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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Given the increasingly global stresses on forests, many ecologists argue that managers must maintain ecological resilience: the capacity of ecosystems to absorb disturbances without undergoing fundamental change. In this review we ask: Can the emerging...

Stand age structures of Eastern White Pine (Pious strobus L.) were analysed on three sites with different fire histories (latest fire 1760, 1825 and 1941, respectively) in Québec to assess whether Eastern White Pine is regenerating or not at its...

The nonvascular and vascular plant composition of the early regenerating vegetation present following wildfires and clear-cut logging has been compared separately in three areas of the black spruce (Picea mariana (Mill.) BSP) - feathermoss (Pleurozium...

In order to test whether changes in forest composition observed while sampling portions of the landscape originating from different fires may be explained by stand-level processes, I reconstructed species and stand dynamics for mesic sites in the...

Succession after fire has mainly been studied by chronosequence, which does not allow study of pre- and post-fire communities at the same site. By using palynology and anthracology. we recovered vegetation communities and fire histories through time on...

The nonvascular (lichens and bryophytes) and vascular plant composition of the early regenerating vegetation present following wildfires and clear-cut logging has been compared separately in three areas of the black spruce (Picea mariana)/feathermoss (...

In the boreal forest, the beneficial effect of wildfire on germination substrates has often been linked to the adsorption by charcoal of phenolic compounds detrimental for seedling germination and growth. Our goal was to show that active charcoal has...

The effects of fire severity and initial post-fire tree composition on long-term stand structural development were investigated in the Picea mariana-feathermoss bioclimatic domain of northwestern Québec. Paleoecological methods were used to categorize...

In North America, Eurasia, and Australia, salvage logging is increasingly being used to mitigate economic losses due to fire, although the effects of this type of intervention are still essentially unknown. In a field experiment in a large recent...
