The response of mammals to forest fire and timber harvest in the North American boreal forest

  title={The response of mammals to forest fire and timber harvest in the North American boreal forest},
  author={Jason T. Fisher and Lisa Wilkinson},
1. This paper reviews and compares the effects of forest fire and timber harvest on mammalian abundance and diversity, throughout successional time in the boreal forest of North America. 2. Temporal trends in mammal abundance and diversity are generally similar for both harvested and burned stands, with some differences occurring in the initiation stage (0– 10 years post disturbance). 3. Small mammals and ungulates are most abundant immediately post disturbance, and decrease as stands age… CONTINUE READING
