Research and Publications Database

The NRFSN research and publications database leads users to regionally relevant fire science. There are more than 2,900 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.

As the climate gets warmer, many forests are feeling the heat. Impacts range from increased forest fire hazards and tree mortality to detrimental beetle outbreaks and alterations to leaf abundance and bloom. Persistent warming can lead to chronic stress on forest trees, resulting in higher sensitivity to fire-induced damage. So,...

Terrestrial carbon cycle models, or dynamic global vegetation models (DGVMs), have long been used to estimate biogeochemical and biophysical feedbacks to climate. At their core, DGVMs represent vegetation and landscape dynamics using process-based representations of photosynthesis, carbon allocation, stand...

The U.S. Forest Service is working with other federal agencies and stakeholders to develop climate change vulnerability assessments and adaptation strategies for national forests and adjacent lands in the western United States. Teams of research scientists and resource managers are working across large biogeographic landscapes to (1...

Understanding differences in social vulnerability across a region can help public land management agencies assess potential tradeoffs associated with managing natural resources in the face of climate change. Regional social vulnerability assessments can also inform the development of policies and programs that aim to assist...

A longstanding question in biogeography is how long-lived plants such as trees kept pace with climate changes of the past. The question is also relevant today as climate change accelerates and habitats become fragmented. To help address this question, scientists have studied two facets of the problem: 1) How fast can plants...

Understanding fire refugia and its interactions with other stressors, poses extreme challenges to biodiversity conservation. An important and potentially efficient adaptation strategy will be the identification and protection of natural refugia that buffer biodiversity from the rate and magnitude of regional change. The most...

This presentation addresses issues confronting preservation and restoration of big sagebrush, focusing on climate, wildfire, and invasives. Preliminary and published insights on climate responses of sagebrush and implications for vulnerability assessments and post-fire restoration will be described. Responses of big sagebrush and...

The pressures facing quaking aspen (Populus tremuloides) forests in the Intermountain West are multifaceted. Fire suppression, climate change and browsing pressure by ungulates are just several of the factors that threaten the health of this foundation species. Here we present two leading scientists in North America who study aspen...
