International Journal of Wildland Fire
Getting Started With Fire Ecology Literature
Fire Research and Management Exchange System (FRAMES)
The goal of FRAMES is to provide a systematic method of exchanging information and transferring technology between wildland fire researchers, managers, and other stakeholders in order to make wildland fire documents, data, tools, and other information resources easy to find, access, distribute, compare, and use.
International Multiproxy Paleofire Database
The International Multiproxy Paleofire Database (IMPD) is an archive of fire history data derived from natural proxies. The IMPD, which includes data from tree scars and establishment data, and charcoal in sediment records, has been established with guidance from an Advisory Board to provide a permanent repository for high-quality paleofire records from around the world.
LANDFIRE (also known as Landscape Fire and Resource Management Planning Tools) is an interagency vegetation, fire, and fuel characteristics mapping program, sponsored by the United States Department of the Interior (DOI) and the United States Department of Agriculture, Forest Service.
National Interagency Fire Center (Boise, ID)
The National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC), located in Boise, Idaho, is the nation's support center for wildland firefighting. Eight different agencies and organizations are part of NIFC. Decisions are made using the interagency cooperation concept because NIFC has no single director or manager.
Global Fire Monitoring Center
The GFMC provides a global portal for wildland fire documentation, information and monitoring and is publicly accessible through the Internet.
Missoula Fire Sciences Laboratory
The Fire, Fuel, and Smoke Science Program (FFS) of the Rocky Mountain Research Station is located at the Missoula Fire Sciences Laboratory in Missoula, Montana. The Program’s scientists, technicians and support staff conducts international, cutting edge work in wildland fire research from fire physics to fire ecology.
Organizations & Associations
University of Idaho - Wildland Fire Program
We encourage an interdisciplinary approach to solving real-world problems in our teaching, research and outreach. We offer more courses focused on fire than any other natural resources school in the country.
Association of Fire Ecology
The Association for Fire Ecology is an organization of professionals dedicated to improving the knowledge and use of fire in land management through science and education.
International Association of Wildland Fire
The International Association of Wildland Fire (IAWF) is a non-profit, professional association representing members of the global wildland fire community.
National Wildfire Coordinating Group
The purpose of NWCG is to coordinate programs of the participating wildfire management agencies so as to avoid wasteful duplication and to provide a means of constructively working together. The group provides a formalized system to agree upon standards of training, equipment, qualifications, and other operational functions.
