Pinus albicaulis Engelm. (whitebark pine) in mixed-species stands throughout its US range: Broad-scale indicators of extent and recent decline

Publications Posted on: March 22, 2018
We used data collected from >1400 plots by a national forest inventory to quantify population-level indicators for a tree species of concern. Whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis) has recently experienced high mortality throughout its US range, where we assessed the area of land with whitebark pine present, size-class distribution of individual whitebark pine, growth rates, and mortality rates, all with respect to dominant forest type.

Physical and chemical properties of the foliage of 10 live wildland fuels

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
This data package contains data from over 3000 individual fuel elements collected as part of Joint Fire Science Program (JFSP) project 11-1-4-19 "Determination of the effects of heating mechanisms and moisture content on ignition of live fuels." Data were collected each month during one of two one-year periods.

Fuel treatment and previous fire effects on daily fire management costs

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
This publication contains tabular data used to evaluate the effects of fuel treatments and previously burned areas on daily wildland fire management costs. The data represent daily Forest Service fire management costs for a sample of 56 fires that burned between 2008 and 2012 throughout the conterminous United States.

Characteristics of masticated particles in mixed-conifer forests of the western United States: Field data

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
This data publication contains the results of field work in masticated materials of mixed-conifer forests in 14 study locations. Mixed-conifer masticated materials were investigated in four states of the western U.S., including Idaho, Colorado, New Mexico, and South Dakota.

Characteristics of masticated particles in mixed-conifer forests of the western United States: Moisture-loss tests

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
This data publication contains the results of three separate moisture tests on masticated fuels collected from mixed-conifer forests in 14 study locations. These data were collected from 2012 through 2016 as part of the MASTIDON project.

Characteristics of masticated particles in mixed-conifer forests of the western United States: Chemistry, heat content, and mineral percentage results

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
This data publication contains the results of chemical and mineral analyses on masticated particles from mixed-conifer forests in 15 study locations. These data were collected from 2012 through 2016 as part of the MASTIDON project.

Characteristics of masticated particles in mixed-conifer forests of the western United States: Experimental burns and smoldering tests

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
This data publication contains the results from 45 experimental burns and 48 smoldering tests on masticated materials from mixed-conifer forests. These data were collected from 15 study locations from 2012 through 2016 as part of the MASTIDON project. The MASTIDON project was a four-year study to describe the phyical characteristics of masticated materials that were treated with four different cutting heads in xeric and mesic environments.

Characteristics of masticated particles in mixed-conifer forests of the western United States: Shape, particle, and fuel load characteristics

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
This data publication contains the results of sorting masticated particles from mixed-conifer forests in 15 study locations. These data were collected from 2012 through 2016 as part of the MASTIDON project. The MASTIDON project was a four-year research project to study how masticated material differs when treated with different cutting machines and how the masticated particles decompose when left on the ground for multiple years.

Growth and survival before and after a mountain pine beetle outbreak in a ponderosa pine genetic trial

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
This data package contains data used for the publication "An insect outbreak shifts the direction of selection from fast to slow growth rates in the long-lived conifer Pinus ponderosa" (de la Mata et al. 2017). The study includes measurements from 204 half-sibling families planted in a common garden experiment planted in 1974 and last measured in 2013.

Coram Experimental Forest daily meteorology data for Desert Ridge and Terrace Hills weather stations: 1996-2015

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
This data publication contains daily meteorological data collected at the Desert Ridge and Terrace Hills weather stations located on the Coram Experimental Forest (Flathead National Forest) in Montana. The Terrace Hills weather station was installed in May of 1996, and the Desert Ridge weather station was installed in May of 2001. Data are included up through 2015 for both stations.
