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.

One concept in geomorphology is that vegetation is a fundamental control on sediment and water supplies to streams and, therefore, on downstream fluvial processes and channel morphology. Within this paradigm, wildfire has been implicated as a major driving force behind landscape erosion and changes to stream channels, periodically...

Solar radiation has long been recognized as a major component of the energy budget of streams, and modeling of stream temperature across stream basins requires estimates of riparian stream shade over extensive areas. A variety of methods are available for measuring shade locally, including hemispherical photography, however these...

Several large, uncharacteristic wildfires occurred on the Boise National Forest in Southwest Idaho, from 1986 to 2003. From 1987 to 1994, severe wildfires burned almost 50% of the ponderosa pine forest types (about 200,000 ha). The intensity of the fires varied across the landscape, with a mix of low to moderate severity, and lesser...

This FEIS species review synthesizes information on the relationship of Lonicera fragrantissima, Lonicera maackii, Lonicera morrowii, Lonicera tatarica, Lonicera x bella, Lonicera xylosteum (winter honeysuckle, Amur honeysuckle, Morrow's honeysuckle, Tatarian honeysuckle, Bell's honeysuckle, European fly honeysuckle) to fire--how...

The goal of the project is to understand how fire in upland and riparian forests influence stream communities and whether prescription burning mimics the ecological function of fire in a watershed. The project has two components: wildland fire and prescribed fire. To document the range of biotic and abiotic responses to wildland...

Ecological theory proposes that the geometry and dynamics of suitable habitats are important predictors for the persistence of a population or metapopulation. A key finding supporting a metapopulation-like conceptualization of extinction and colonization in fragmented salmonid populations is that individuals of particular species...

Temperature is a critical factor in stream ecosystems, and one that is very likely to be altered by wildfire and associated channel disturbance. In central Idaho streams, temperatures after wildfires may increase following loss of shade from riparian vegetation, and changes in channel structure that increase exposure to solar...

This FEIS species review synthesizes information on the relationship of Elaeagnus angustifolia (Russian-olive) to fire--how fire affects the species and its habitat, invasiveness of the species, effects of the species on fuels and fire regimes, and fire management considerations. Information is also provided on the species' taxonomy...
