Title: Stand Structure and Breeding Birds: Implications for Restoring Ponderosa Pine Forests

Author: * Kalies, E.L., Rosenstock, S.S.

Subject: Birds, Ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa), Stand Treatment

Abstract: Fire-adapted forests in the western United States have dramatically departed from the natural or evolutionary environment over the past century because of fire suppression, logging, grazing, and other management practices. In particular, most southwestern ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) forests are characterized by dense stands of small-diameter trees that are susceptible to stand-replacing crown fires and ensuing damage to watersheds, wildlife habitat, and communities at the wildland-urban interface.
