A Large Fire Database (LFDB), which includes information on fire location, start date, final size, cause, and suppression action, has been developed for all fires larger than 200 ha in area for Canada for the 1959-1997 period. The LFDB represents only 3.1% of the total number of Canadian fires...
Fire regimes at the transition between mixedwood and coniferous boreal forest in northwestern Quebec.Download
Fire history was reconstructed for an area of 15 000 km2 located in the transition zone between the mixed and coniferous forests in Quebec's southern boreal forest. We used aerial photographs, archives, and dendroecological data (315 sites) to reconstruct a stand initiation map for the area. The...
Temporal variability in area burned for the Province of Ontario, Canada during the past 200 years inferred from tree-ringsDownload
Area burned variability in the province of Ontario, Canada, was inferred from 25 tree ring width chronologies covering A. D. 1781-1982 and distributed largely across the Boreal Shield. The area burned estimates account for 39.5% of the variance in the actual area burned recorded from 1917 to 1981...
