An increase in the use of prescribed fire as a forest management tool is anticipated in Ontario where its use is viewed as a viable method of site preparation for regeneration purposes. Literature available on prescribed burning in the jack pine (Pinus...

From the Conclusion: 'The ultimate justification for conducting research on forest fire is a) that it is a complex natural phenomenon with both physical and biological dimensions, b) that it can only be described and understood through scientific...
From the text: 'This poster display illustrates the current development of a classification of fuels in aspen forests. Fuels and flammability vary considerably within the aspen and mixed aspen/conifer forest types depending upon plant community...
From the text: 'Aspen is seral on most sites. It colonizes and dominates burns, clearcuts, and other disturbed locations. Maximum aspen biomass is attained between 50 and 100 years after stand establishment. Sometimes later, between 200 and 400...
Text: 'The organic mantle of the forest floor acts as a barrier to heat transport down into the mineral soil. This study compares the temperatures experienced in a surrogate mineral soil (sand) with and without an organic mantle (peat moss)...
Text: 'Eleven experimental burns were conducted in the Kapuskasing District of the northern Clay Belt Region in Ontario for the period 1979-1983. The test fires, using strip headfires for ignition, were used to study the fire behavior in boreal...
Text: 'Historically, surface fires ignited by lightning and Native Americans burned through the ponderosa pine-fir forests of the Northern Rockies at intervals of 5 to 25 years. The frequent underburns favored regeneration and survival of pine and...
From the text: 'In summary, the coupling of a burning prescription which could deliver adequate fire intensity with gelled gasoline helitorch ignition to overcome some of the fuel arrangement and topographic problems resulted in a generally...
From the text: 'This technique uses a form for recording and displaying prescription fire data. Measured environmental elements and observed fire behavior are consolidated on one page.'
Combustion of a forest fuel complex produces a diverse mixture of oxygenated and unsaturated hydrocarbon compounds mixed with aerosols. This study examines the production rates for a number of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) precursor compounds...
