Author: * Kalies, E.L.
Subject: Wildlife, Wildlife-habitat relationships, Ecological Restoration
Abstract: Ecological restoration treatments, including thinning and/or burning, expose wildlife species to short- and long-term alterations to their habitat. Restoration treatments are an effort to return forest structure and composition to within the range of natural variability, which should benefit native wildlife species. However, these treatments are being planned and implemented across thousands of acres of forest in the southwestern United States with only limited quantitative data about wildlife responses across multiple species or taxa.
