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 nearly 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 FEIS species review synthesizes information on the relationship of Picea engelmannii (Engelmann spruce) to fire--how fire affects the species and its habitat, and fire management considerations. Information is also provided on the species' taxonomy, distribution, basic biology, and general management. This species review can be...

Litter arthropod data was collected every 10 days from nine intensively burned forest stands, five lightly burned stands, and nine unburned forest stands. For burned forest stands (n=540 samples, there were decreases in insect density (87 percent), noninsect density (67 Percent), noninsect taxa (63 percent), and noninsect diversity...

Presettlement fire played an important role in nutrient conversion, plant succession, diversity, and stand dynamics in coniferous forests of western North America. Prescribed fire can maintain site quality and contribute to control of insect and disease problems while reducing wildfire hazard. Fire effects on soils are largely...

Adaptive resource management is a continuous learning process in which current knowledge always leads to further experimentation and discovery. Adaptive management evolves by learning from mistakes. Designing adaptive management strategies involves four tasks. First, the problem must be defined and bounded. There is growing...

Version 2 of the Regeneration Establishment Model is part of version 6 of the Prognosis Model for Stand Development. The regeneration model predicts results of regeneration harvests for most site and stand conditions found in the Northern Rocky Mountains. The model is based on analysis of 12,128 1/300-acre plots sampled in forests...

Assessment of crown fire conditions calls for two important judgments: (1) identifying conditions for the onset of severe fires, and (2) predicting the spread rate, intensity, and size of expected crown fires. This paper addresses the second problem and provides methods for making a first approximation of the behavior of a running...

Snow-avalanche paths and landslides are common geomorphic features in Glacier National Park (GNP), Montana, and represent hazards to human occupancy and utilization of the park. Forest fires have been spatially extensive there, and it is well documented that areas subjected to forest fires become increasingly susceptible to...

This work introduces remote sensing of biomass burning emissions using high-resolution Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) absorption spectroscopy over open paths in smoke plumes from biomass fires. There are several advantages to this type of smoke composition measurement, which address some of the disadvantages of previous...
