Effects of Interacting Disturbances on Landscape Patterns : Budworm Defoliation and Salvage Logging

  title={Effects of Interacting Disturbances on Landscape Patterns : Budworm Defoliation and Salvage Logging},
  author={Volker C. Radeloff and David J. Mladenoff and Mark S Boyce},
Prior to European settlement, the 450 000-ha Pine Barrens region in northwestern Wisconsin, USA, was characterized by a landscape mosaic of large, open patches, savannas, and closed forest stands of jack pine (Pinus banksiana). Crown-fires created large open patches that persisted on the droughty soils, providing important habitat for a number of area-sensitive, open-habitat species. Insect outbreaks may have contributed to periodic fires by increasing the fuel load. Today, fires are suppressed… CONTINUE READING
