A JFSP Fire Science Exchange Network
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 4,700 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 Webinars & Recorded Media Archive, which provides access to webinars, videos, podcasts, storymaps, 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.

A study was initiated in 1995 to measure landscape changes in forest structures between 1900 and 1995. A systematic sampling system was used to collect data on three forested faces on the Bitterroot Front. Over 1,200 tree cores were taken on 216 plots between the elevation range of 4,500 to 7,500 feet. Historic forests were...

Thirty years ago the effects of timber harvest, prescribed burning, and wildfire were investigated in a western larch/Douglas-fir forest on the Flathead National Forest in western Montana. The original study was designed to investigate the effects of prescribed burning on soil physical and biological properties, and on subsequent...

Atop a ridge in Yellowstone National Park in 1984, a freak summer wind—perhaps a tornado or a downburst from a thunderstorm—leveled an ancient lodge-pole pine forest, piling up a head-high maze of logs. In the notorious summer of 1988, when wildfires burned one-third of the park, a fire front swept across the same ridge,...

National forests of the dry, interior portion of the western United States that are managed by the Department of Agriculture's Forest Service have undergone significant changes over the last century and a half, becoming much denser, with fewer large trees and many more small, tightly spaced trees and underbrush. These changes have...

The riparian vegetation along the Bighorn River in Wyoming forms a complex mosaic comprised of cottonwood (Populus deltoides) groves, meadows, marshes, and several kinds of shrubland. Changes in the riparian mosaic during the last 50 years were reconstructed using tree ring analysis and aerial photos taken over the river in 1938,...

Field experiments were conducted to examine the effects of disturbance frequency on invertebrates and periphyton colonizing bricks in a third order Rocky Mountain (USA) stream. After an initial colonization period (30 days), sets of bricks were turned over at intervals of 0, 3, 9, 27, or 54 days. Invertebrate species richness and...
