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 3,600 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.

Wildland fires spread through combinations of living and dead vegetation and the largest fires generally occur in fuels that are dominated by living plants. While much is known about the factors that regulate fire spread through dead fuels, the controlling factors of live fuel flammability have proven elusive. Here we present an...

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...

U.S. Forest Service Southern Research Station (SRS) Research Ecologists Steve Norman and William Hargrove with the SRS Eastern Forests Environmental Threat Assessment Center (EFETAC) presented a webinar on ForWarn, an online satellite-based change detection tool that maps disturbances and drought effects every 8 days. It includes...

Although fire is ubiquitous in forest ecosystems, its role in driving forest cover change and climate feedbacks remains unclear at the global scale. Here we present an observation-driven assessment of fire-induced forest cover loss and its biophysical climate feedback. Our results show that fire-induced forest cover accounts for 14....

There will be dramatic changes to most landscapes of the western US over the next century, such as shifts in vegetation communities, changes in fire regimes, and increases in smoke emissions. These changes will result from complex interactions among vegetation, fuels, fire, and altered climate at the finest scales causing new and...

Concern over the social, economic, and ecological consequences of increasingly frequent "megafires" in California's Sierra Nevada have led some to propose large-scale forest restoration to increase ecosystem resilience. However, restoration efforts (e.g., forest thinning) may have collateral impacts on declining old-forest species....
