Description

[from the text] Fire is an integral part of the forest ecology of the taiga of interior Alaska. For years people have observed the immediate and general impacts of fire on vegetation. Few have documented their observations of these fires, and even fewer have observed a given burn through time; however, the revegetation of one wildfire, the 1950 Porcupine River Fire, has been studied intermittently since 1951.
