  • A current paradigm in conservation biology is that forest harvest practices that better approximate natural disturbance processes are more likely to conserve biodi- versity. We contrasted bird communities in three replicate stands in each of 1, 13-15, and 22-28 yr old forests following wildfire and harvest in north-central Alberta, Canada. Stands were chosen from old (>120 yr) boreal mixedwood forests having -95% of the canopy trees killed during fire, and harvested sites retaining an average… CONTINUE READING
