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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

The pattern of primary succession on the floodplain of the Tanana River in interior Alaska resulted largely from interactions between stochastic events and life history traits of the dominant species. Seed rain by willow (Salix alaxensis), alder (Alnus...

An important challenge in global-change research is to stimulate short-term transient changes in climate, disturbance regime, and recruitment that drive long-term vegetation distributions. Spatial features (e.g., topographic barriers) and processes,...

We used a combination of surveys of natural vegetation and seed-sowing and seedling transplant experiments to determine the relative importance of competition and microenvironmental modification as mechanisms by which understory vegetation influences...

Several years ago the author started to view taiga forests in terms of an energy and nutrient limitation theory, for simplicity, separating taiga forests into two basic units - the plants and the microbes. The fauna was omitted; no doubt they are most...

From introduction: 'Most forest communities in interior Alaska have been extensively influenced by recurring fire. To a large extent, the distribution of the dominant tree species has been shaped by fire. First-time visitors are often struck by...
