Alaska Fire Portal
The Alaska Fire Portal provides information about fire science and technology relevant to Alaska. Our goal is to provide "one-stop shopping" for resource managers, decision makers, scientists, students, and communities who want access to the results of efforts to understand and manage fire and fuels on lands in Alaska. Content may also be relevant to boreal forests of western Canada.
A substantial amount of the Alaska-related content was originally compiled through the FIREHouse project (the Northwest and Alaska Fire Research Clearinghouse), funded by the Joint Fire Science Program, and its two related projects: the Alaska Reference Database, (which was merged the FRAMES Resource Catalog, accessible through the "Catalog Records" tab below) and the Alaska Fire and Fuels Research Map, hosted through the AICC ArcIMS mapping website.

As a continuation on the Nelchina caribou range relationships study initiated in 1955 and last reported on in 1972, 38 range stations were examined during the summers of 1977 and 1983. Evaluations of plant species composition, height, percent cover,...
The present infestation is believed to have developed from a combination of factors: 1) large amounts of breeding material resulting from the Rosie Creek Fire and broken tops originating from heavy snowfalls in the 1984-85 winter, and 2) abnormally low...
Broadcast burning following harvesting of flood plain sites in Alaska substantially decreased residual organic material and increased exposed mineral soil. Two forest types were studied: white spruce/alder/feathermoss and white spruce/alder/...
A group of wild moose from Manitoba, Canada, were documented as having excessive tooth wear. Replicas of one incisor tooth were collected from 16 individuals and from 19 controls for comparison by volumetric and scanning electron microscopic analysis....
Rumen samples from 104 barren-ground caribou (Rangifer tarandus groenlandicus) collected in March 1980 and 1981 at 18 sites on the winter range in south-central Northwest Territories (NWT) and northern Saskatchewan were examined microscopically for...
During the past 5 years, the U.S. Geological Survey's (USGS) Earth Resources Observation Systems (EROS) Data Center Field Office in Anchorage, Alaska has worked cooperatively with Federal and State resource management agencies to produce land-...
Density dependent effects of food limitation on productivity have been documented for >12 species of large ungulates. In wild reindeer (Rangifer tarandus) a decrease in recruitment rate and adult female body size (although not in adult survival rate...
An evolving understanding of ecological processes, together with ambiguities in National Park Service policy, have led to multiple interpretations of the role of management in our large natural area National Parks. National Park Service management...
The data base of the Planning and Inventory Branch, B.C. Ministry of Forests, consists of approximately 7000 forest cover maps, descriptive statistics, growth information and depletion data. This data base must be current and hence, needs to be updated...
On April 6, 2020, the Fire Management Board (FMB) established the Wildland Fire Medical and Public Health Advisory Team (MPHAT) to address medical and health-related issues specific to the interagency administration of mission critical wildland fire management functions under a COVID-19 modified operating posture. The COVID-19 MPHAT is tasked with providing medical and public health expertise, advice, coordination, and collaboration with external subject matter experts and developing protocols and practices for all aspects of COVID-19 planning, prevention, and mitigation for wildland fire operations. Guidance found on this page has been issued via FMB Memorandum. They may be updated as appropriate and necessary to respond to the evolving situations and work conditions surrounding COVID-19.
These positions are located within a National Forest. The incumbents serve as a technicians to forestry research scientists at a Research Station in a Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) Work Unit. FIA is a nationwide program which collects, processes, analyzes, evaluates, and publishes comprehensive information on forest and other related renewable resources.

The University of British Columbia in Vancouver, British Columbia, seeks applicants for five tenure-track positions at the level of Assistant Professor in the thematic area of restoring and protecting global biodiversity. The Faculty of Science, together with the Faculties of Arts, Forestry, and Land and Food Systems, is sponsoring this unique cluster hire, which builds on existing excellence in this area at UBC. These new hires will join an interdisciplinary research and scholarship team focused on solutions-oriented approaches to biodiversity loss, and its connection to sustainability and adaptive capacity for humanity. For further information see https://biodiversity.ubc.ca/cluster-hire
As part of the cluster, we seek a Conservation and Restoration Scientist to be jointly appointed in the Departments of Botany, and Forest & Conservation Sciences, with opportunities for strong interaction with UBC’s Beaty Biodiversity Museum and Biodiversity Research Centre. The Conservation and Restoration Scientist will conduct research broadly investigating how to conserve and protect biodiversity, and restore functioning ecosystems in a changing world. Applicants should have an interest in integrating fundamental research on restoring biodiversity, ecosystem functions or adaptive capacity, with applied research on conservation and restoration strategies that involve engagement with communities, industry or governments. Their expertise will be in ecology (including applied ecology), conservation, evolutionary biology, forestry, geography, or related disciplines. We encourage applicants who use a range of empirical or theoretical approaches, applying them to real-world problems from local to global scales, in terrestrial or aquatic ecosystems, and working in plant, animal or fungal systems.
The Nature Conservancy (TNC) has numerous fire positions at various levels open in several states.

The Association for Fire Ecology (AFE) is composed of professionals from around the world, who together play a key role in wildland fire and fire ecology research, education, management, and policy. AFE values the diversity of perspectives and range of experiences held by its members. AFE aims to actively cultivate the future of fire and resource conservation by investing in future leaders through the AFE Mentoring Futures Program.
The committee will meet in November to match participants. All are welcome to participate.
This study is collecting feedback from female firefighters regarding the design, fit, and mobility of their personal protective clothing. Females firefighters in the US are invited to participate.
With multiple agencies/entities, groups and task forces all working to find solutions for operational concerns surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, the need for a space to share information is apparent. This forum serves as a platform to ask questions, as well as to share ideas, information, and solutions.
