Fire Ecology Database: The E.V. Komarek Fire Ecology Database is comprised of bibliographic citations to a broad collection of fire ecology literature. All papers from the Proceedings of the Tall Timbers Fire Ecology Conferences, 1-21, are in the database and include an abstract for each entry. The NWRC library has many of the conference proceedings and papers listed in the database.
Fire Effects Information System (FEIS):
FEIS summarizes and synthesizes research about the biology and ecology of living organisms in the United States and their relationship to fire. The database contains literature reviews of almost 900 plant species, about 100 animal species, and 16 Kuchler plant communities found on the North American continent. The emphasis of each review is fire and how it affects each species. Background information on taxonomy, distribution, basic biology, and ecology of each species is also included. Reviews are thoroughly documented, and each contains a complete bibliography.
