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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

An effective approach to increase forest health is to identify and validate a suite of indicators for monitoring forest conditions. We sought indicators of impacts due to deer browsing. prescribed burn, visitor use, and trails on understory plants...

Recent modelling results indicate that forest fires and other disturbances determine the magnitude of the Canadian forest carbon balance. The regeneration of post-fire vegetation is key to the recovery of net primary productivity (NPP) following fire....

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...

From the Preface ... 'Fire's impact upon the land, atmosphere, and global environment have been apparently more pronounced and more anxiety-causing to the public. The suppression of fire has caused harm to some ecosystems, either through...

Herbicides have been added to silvicultural treatments involving fire for nearly 50 years and, for some objectives, can even substitute for a prescribed burn. Herbicides and/or fire create changes in the effects of silvicultural treatments at...

The central concern in ecological restoration is reversing the degradation of ecosystems by restoring the structure and function of ecosystems to approximate those conditions present before degradation began. In many frequent-fire ecosystems,...
