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.

This FEIS species review synthesizes information on the relationship of Vaccinium caespitosum (dwarf bilberry) 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...

The authors explain the ways in which uncertainty is an important factor in the problems of risk and policy analysis. This book outlines the source and nature of uncertainty, discusses techniques for obtaining and using expert judgment, and reviews a variety of simple and advanced methods for analyzing uncertainty. Powerful computer...

The responses of streams to the 1979 Mortar Creek fire in central Idaho provide valuable insights into the extended impact of wildfire on trout habitat. The fire dramatically increased runoff and fine sediment levels and reduced shading and cover from undercut banks and woody vegetation. Although habitat conditions for all life...

[from the text] Forest history studies (Arno 1980, Dieterich 1983) indicate that before fire suppression was initiated at the start of this century, most forest fires were surface fires. These fires reduced fire hazards and improved stand conditions by preparing seedbeds, thinning advance regeneration, and retarding the invasion of...

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...

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...

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...
