STAND STRUCTURE AND SMALL MAMMALS IN YOUNG LODGEPOLE PINE FOREST: 10‐YEAR RESULTS AFTER THINNING
Management of forested landscapes for biological diversity is a major objective across North America. Perhaps the greatest potential to diversify future forests lies in the vast areas of youngExpand

Influence of alternative vegetation management treatments on conifer plantation attributes: abundance, species diversity, and structural diversity
This study was designed to test the hypothesis that alternative vegetation management treatments (manual cutting and cut-stump applications of glyphosate herbicide) would decrease plant communityExpand

SMALL MAMMALS AND STAND STRUCTURE IN YOUNG PINE, SEED-TREE, AND OLD-GROWTH FOREST, SOUTHWEST CANADA
Alternative silvicultural systems to clearcutting are receiving considerable attention in Pacific Northwest forests of North America. Understanding the implications of these harvesting systems onExpand

Stand structure and the abundance and diversity of plants and small mammals in natural and intensively managed forests.
Little attention has been given to investigating biodiversity in managed forests. Pre-commercial thinning (PCT) and fertilization have been used successfully to increase growth of coniferous trees,Expand

Influence of conventional and chemical thinning on stand structure and diversity of plant and mammal communities in young lodgepole pine forest
Abstract Silvicultural practices that provide a wide variety of vegetative composition and structure (habitats) in young stands should help manage for biological diversity across forested landscapes.Expand

Long-term responses of ecosystem components to stand thinning in young lodgepole pine forest: IV. Relative habitat use by mammalian herbivores
Pre-commercial thinning (PCT) is a silvicultural practice that can provide diverse understory and overstory vegetation conditions. We tested the hypothesis that relative habitat use by snowshoe hareExpand

Small-mammal response to group-selection silvicultural systems in Engelmann spruce – subalpine fir forests 14 years postharvest
Concerns about the impacts of clear-cut harvesting on ecosystem components in subalpine forests have generated a variety of alternative silvicultural systems in high-elevation forests in westernExpand

Plant community attributes 12 to 14 years following precommercial thinning in a young lodgepole pine forest
We investigated plant community responses (abundance, species diversity, and structural diversity) to a range of precommercial thinning densities in young lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta Dougl. exExpand

Growth response of young lodgepole pine to thinning and repeated fertilization treatments: 10-year results
Summary This study was designed to test the hypothesis that large-scale pre-commercial thinning (PCT) to various stand densities, at ages 12 – 14 years, combined with repeated fertilization, would,Expand

Long-term responses of ecosystem components to stand thinning in young lodgepole pine forest: II. Diversity and population dynamics of forest floor small mammals
A variety of silvicultural practices may be used to diversify second-growth forests that have regenerated from clearcut harvesting. These young stands are structurally simple and amenable toExpand
