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.

The last outbreak of mountain pine beetle affected more than 27 million hectares of forest in western North America. This outbreak enabled further development of the semiochemical verbenone, a compound discovered in the late 1960’s that is the antiaggregant for mountain pine beetle. Verbenone sends the signal “this tree is...

Stress complexes in Western forests are affected by a warmer climate, that is the interaction of fire, drought, insects, etc. can alter the vigor of forest ecosystems and potentially change their structure and function. This webinar will cover the concepts and present several case studies. The presenters will also discuss management...

In October 1997, I attended a conference in Park City, Utah on the Future of Wildland Fire Research. Billed as 'an experiment, a beginning,' this seminal workshop developed action plans to create an interdepartmental competitive grants program, a coordinated response to managing fire regimes for ecosystem health, and a framework for...

Since 2004 the Greater Yellowstone Inventory and Monitoring Network has been monitoring the condition of individual whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis) trees over time at 176 sites across the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Since 2007 a mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae) epidemic swept through the...

Bark beetles are critical natural agents of tree mortality and ecosystem disturbance in coniferous forests. Despite formidable defenses, including resin produced in resin ducts, bark beetles have recently caused extensive outbreaks in western North America. Defenses, however, are costly to produce and trade-offs...
