Research and Publications Database

The NRFSN research and publications database leads users to regionally relevant fire science. There are more than 2,900 documents, which have been carefully categorized by the NRFSN to highlight topics and ecosystems important in the Northern Rockies Region. Categorized resources include records from the Joint Fire Science Program (JFSP), Fire Research and Management Exchange System (FRAMES), and Fire Effects Information System (FEIS).

Note: Additional Northern Rockies fire research is available from our Webinar & Video Archive.

Hints: By default, the Search Terms box reads and searches for terms as if there were AND operators between them. To search for one or more terms, use the OR operator. Use quotation marks around phrases or to search for exact terms. To maximize the search function, use the Search Terms box for other information (e.g. author(s), date, species of interest, additional fire topics) together with the topic, ecosystem, and/or resource type terms from the lists. Additional information is available in our documents on topics, ecosystems, and types.

A brief reconnaissance of the Great Plains and fire that will place its fire scene within the national narrative. From the onset of European contact, the grasslands were famous for their fires. They stimulated a debate about the relative roles of climate and humans. They prompted one of America's two national traditions of fire...

The area burned by wildfires has increased in recent decades and is expected to increase in the future for many watersheds worldwide due to climate change. Burned areas within watersheds increase soil erosion rates, which can increase the downstream accumulation of sediment in rivers and reservoirs. Using an ensemble of climate,...

Bioenergy production from forest biomass offers a solution to reduce wildfire hazard fuel levels, decrease insect and disease outbreaks, and reduce the incidence of invasive species while producing a useful source of renewable energy. However, on-site bioenergy production and the subsequent application of biochar to forest sites...

Tree mortality is one of the most important effects of forest fires, influencing important ecosystem services such as forest productivity, wildlife habitat and carbon sequestration. In this webinar participants will learn about the latest research on the mechanisms of fire-caused tree mortality, and how it varies across tree species...

This video with Dr. Dick Hutto, retired ecology professor with the University of Montana, was filmed on an eleven-year-old burned site. This was the third stop during the Blue Mountain Fire Effects field trip held during the 2014 Large Wildland Fires Conference. The video highlights plant and animal responses to fire.

This webinar addresses additional issues and questions that arose during the original webinar, “Prescribed Fire: Smoke Management and Regulatory Challenges." Moderator: Mike Zupko, Executive Director, Wildland Fire Leadership Council. Panelists: Pete Lahm, Smoke Manager, U.S. Forest Service; Mark Melvin, Chair, Coalition of...

Patterns of energy and available moisture vary over small distances in mountainous regions and available climate data are too coarse to resolve these terrain-mediated effects. This seminar focused on efforts to improve the physical template we use to analyze vegetation patterns and post-fire ecological effects, including what has...
