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.

Disturbance regime is a critical organizing feature of stream communities and ecosystems. The position of a given reach in the river basin and the sediment type within that reach are two key determinants of the frequency and intensity of flow-induced disturbances. We distinguish between predictable and unpredictable events and...

Habitat distribution and stand dynamics of whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis) within the whitebark pine zone of the Mount Washburn massif, Yellowstone National Park were investigated as part of a study of relationships among grizzly bears, red squirrels, and whitebark pine. Distribution of whitebark pine and whitebark pine habitat...

This FEIS species review synthesizes information on the relationship of Actaea rubra (red baneberry) 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 used...

Whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis) has received little management emphasis except in the past 10 years. Silvicultural treatment of whitebark pine is starting to draw increased interest as attention is focused on the species and its potential management. The objective of this paper is to summarize what is currently known about the...

We present a narrative account of case studies of the recovery of flowing water systems from disturbance, focusing on the investigators' conclusions about recovery time and the factors contributing to recovery. We restrict our attention to case studies in which the recovery of some biological property of the system has been examined...

Regardless of the mixture of land management objectives, quantification of the type of stands that will meet these objectives, target stands, is needed. Quantification of target stands is essential as the starting point for the diagnosis of treatment needs and to achieve consistency over time in the interpretation of a given...
