Landscape-scale management of Forest wildlife populations


August 2011 - August 2019


Conservation of species has shifted from single site efforts to landscape-scale approaches due to the scale at which many drivers of change (e.g., disturbance) operate. In addition, archiving of data from long-term programs is needed. This project will help assess how forest management may be used to influence forest vertebrate populations through space and time.
