Bringing People Together & Sharing Knowledge in the Northern Rockies

Research and Publications Database

The NRFSN research and publications database leads users to regionally relevant fire science. There are more than 4,000 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, which provides access to webinars, videos, podcasts, and seminars.

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.

This article discusses social considerations with respect to public wildland forest fire policy. Social attitudes, beliefs and behavioral intentions of wildland fire are described as well as the public's knowledge of the effects of fire. This study details these social issues with regards to the 'let burn' policy and the 1988 fires...

Whitebark pine ecosystems are an important element of many of the most spectacular high-elevation landscapes in the western United States. They occupy upper subalpine and timberline zones in the prime recreation lands of the Cascades, the Sierra Nevada, and the Northern Rocky Mountains. This paper explores the nature of the...

Habitats or environmental factors that convey spatial and temporal resistance and/or resilience to biotic communities that have been impacted by biophysical disturbances may be called refugia. Most refugia in rivers are characterized by extensive coupling of the main channel with adjacent streamside forests, floodplain features, and...

Fire affects spawning areas and food habitat in streams by indirectly influencing waterflow, nutrients, erosion, sedimentation, debris, and water temperature. The response of vegetation following fire is the most important factor affecting aquatic areas. Effects of fire on aquatic systems vary over time tending to be detrimental at...

A forest fire followed by an intense convectional rainstorm caused a 100-year flood in the Beaver Creek drainage. This study documented changes in resident trout populations and use of the stream by adfluvial spawning fish. Two months after the event trout populations in the impacted portion of the stream were nearly eliminated....

Whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis) is a valuable wildlife resource in the western United States and southwestern Canada. Its large seeds are a preferred food for a variety of birds and mammals, especially Clark's nutcrackers (Nucifraga columbiana), red squirrels (Tamiasciurus hudsonicus), and bears (Ursus spp.). Whitebark pine...

A successional process model has been adapted for use with species from ponderosa pine/Douglas-fir (Pinus ponderosa var. ponderosa)/(Pseudotsuga menziesii var. glauca) forests of the inland Northwest. Its design allows modification for application to other forest types. This model, FIRESUM, simulates tree establishment, growth, and...
