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.

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.

Patterns of energy and available moisture vary over small distances in mountainous regions and available climate data are too coarse to resolve these terrain-mediated effects. This seminar focused on efforts to improve the physical template we use to analyze vegetation patterns and post-fire ecological effects, including what has...

A 36-minute video recorded in February 2009 as part of the Effective Communication for Smoke Management in a Changing Air Quality Environment workshops. A presentation describing a progressive approach and overreaching principles of smoke management. Also covers the development of basic and enhanced smoke management programs, and...

In this video, Bitterroot National Forest fish biologist, Mike Jakober, discussed postfire studies on native and nonnative fish recovery in several Bitterroot Valley streams. This was filmed along North Rye Creek, which was one of the stops during the Fires of 2000 field trip that was part of the Large Wildland Fires Conference in...

For several months during 2011, wildfires throughout the Southwest Area and Mexico caused air quality impacts on public health across the region, with significant impacts measured hundreds of miles away from individual wildfires. In order to address the emerging issue, a concerted multi-state interagency air quality coordination...

Longleaf pine and ponderosa pine in the same talk? Both of these forests were often described as open and park-like. This presentation will provide a historical overview of these forests and a discussion of each species ecology and the relationship with fire. It is important to use history as a guide and an overview of the early...

The increase of wildfire frequency and size in the Great Basin over the last few decades has taken a toll on sagebrush. As more fires burn, the native sagebrush-steppe ecosystem is being replaced by annual invasive species, primarily cheatgrass, which dominates up to 100 million acres in the West. As sagebrush has decreased, greater...

Various metrics of vegetation recovery following wildfire are useful measures of ecosystem resilience, yet few studies have quantified vegetation recovery ten or more years post-fire. Conventional wisdom is that recovery time to pre-fire condition will be slower as a function of burn severity but will also vary...

Habitat complexity in rivers is linked to physical processes that act at various spatial scales and requires dynamic hydrologic and geomorphic conditions. On regulated rivers in the western United States, tributaries may provide important resource inputs and serve as sources of dynamism on regulated systems, offering blueprints to...

Seedlings and suckers, stands and clones: So you think you know aspen? James Long, Professor, Utah State University. Recorded talk from 2013 Restoring the West Conference at Utah State University. The conference focused on forest resilience and change agents in the West. By Utah State University Extension Forestry. www....

Whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis) is aniconic, five-needle, high-elevation pine whose existence is threatened by an exotic rust, mountain pine beetles, fire suppression, and climate change. Its distribution is limited to western North America and populations have declined 90% in recent decades. Whitebark pine is shade intolerant and...
