Disturbances and structural development of natural forest ecosystems with silvicultural implications, using Douglas-fir forests as an example
Forest managers need a comprehensive scientific understanding of natural stand development processes when designing silvicultural systems that integrate ecological and economic objectives, including… Expand
SCIURIDS IN PACIFIC NORTHWEST MANAGED AND OLD-GROWTH FORESTS'
- A. B. Carey
- 1 August 1995
An understanding of the factors governing sciurid abundance in the Pacific Northwest is essential for prescribing forest management practices for second-growth forests where recovery of Spotted Owl… Expand
Ecological scale and forest development: squirrels, dietary fungi, and vascular plants in managed and unmanaged forests.
Understanding ecological processes and their spatial scales is key to managing ecosystems for biodiversity, especially for species associated with late-serai forest. We focused on 2 species of… Expand
Northern Spotted Owls: Influence of Prey Base and Landscape Character
We studied prey populations and the use and composition of home ranges of 47 Northern Spotted Owls (Strix occidentalis caurina) over 12 mo in five landscapes in two forest types in southwestern… Expand
Small mammals in managed, naturally young, and old-growth forests.
Forest managers in the Pacific Northwest are faced with new challenges of providing for all wildlife in managed forests. Our objective was to elucidate the factors governing the composition and… Expand
EFFECTS OF NEW FOREST MANAGEMENT STRATEGIESON SQUIRREL POPULATIONS
- A. B. Carey
- 1 February 2000
Two strategies for managing forests for multiple values have achieved prominence in debates in the Pacific Northwest: (1) legacy retention with passive management and long rotations, and (2)… Expand
Dens of northern flying squirrels in the Pacific Northwest.
Silvicultural prescriptions to enhance northern flying squirrel (Glaucomys sabrinus) habitat have been suggested as an aid for recovery of the threatened northern spotted owl (Strix occidentalis… Expand
Biocomplexity and restoration of biodiversity in temperate coniferous forest: inducing spatial heterogeneity with variable‐density thinning
- A. B. Carey
Summary Single-species conservation and natural reserves seem insufficient for protecting biodiversity to scientists, and conventional forestry seems suspect in sustainability to much of the public.… Expand
Small mammals in young forests: implications for management for sustainability
Abstract Small mammals have been proposed as indicators of sustainability in forests in the Pacific Northwest and elsewhere. Mammal community composition and species abundances purportedly result… Expand
Manipulation of density of Pseudotsuga menziesii canopies: preliminary effects on understory vegetation
Managing second-growth forests to conserve biodiversity has been proposed by both foresters and conserva- tion biologists. Management, however, can have unintended consequences, including reduction… Expand
