Evaluating Spatially Explicit Viability of a Declining Ruffed Grouse Population

  title={Evaluating Spatially Explicit Viability of a Declining Ruffed Grouse Population},
  author={Erik J. Blomberg},
Species associated with early successional habitats have experienced dramatic declines in the eastern United States as a result of land use changes and human disruption of natural disturbance regimes. Consequently, active management is required to create early successional habitat and promote plant and animal communities that depend on periodic forest disturbance. Ruffed grouse (Bonasa umbellus) depend on recently disturbed forest habitat, and have experienced dramatic declines over the last… CONTINUE READING
