Large-scale conservation assessment for Neotropical migratory land birds in the interior Columbia River basin.

Publications Posted on: June 22, 2020
The status and habitats of Neotropical migratory land birds (NTMB) are evaluated within the interior Columbia River basin (interior basin). Objectives are to examine population trends, estimate NTMB responses to alternative management activities, and provide recommendations by habitat and species for the long-term persistence of NTMB populations.

Integrated wildlife management: western working group

Publications Posted on: May 17, 2006
This session, attended by 90-100 people, focused on current wildlife management practices in the West, how they conflict with neotropical migratory bird conservation, and possible solutions for resolving these conflicts.

Summary of southeastern group breakout sessions

Four case studies were presented to demonstrate how neotropical migrant bird conservation is being integrated info other resource management activities in the Midwest.

Wapiti and warblers: integrating game and nongame management in Idaho

Publications Posted on: May 17, 2006
The primary concern of wildlife managers in the USDA Forest Service (USFS) and ldaho Department of Fish and Game (IDFG) is maintaining elk herds and quality elk hunting. As a result, nongame species like neotropical migratory landbirds do not receive much management attention.

Antelope, sage grouse, and neotropical migrants

Publications Posted on: May 17, 2006
The momentum this Partners in Flight initiative has developed is very impressive. I'm encouraged because, although it will have its costs, I see it as a potential aid to existing wildlife management efforts. Here, I will discuss some types of information that are routinely used by wildlife and habitat managers for other species.

Protection of neotropical migrants as a major focus of wildlife management

Effects of silvicultural treatments on forest birds in the Rocky Mountains: implications and management recommendations

Publications Posted on: May 17, 2006
The short-term effects of timber harvesting practices on landbird species vary widely among species. Thus, the maintenance of populations of all species will require a long-term management strategy that involves maintenance of a variety of habitats over a broad landscape.

Effects of silviculture on neotropical migratory birds in central and southeastern oak pine forests

Publications Posted on: May 17, 2006
Avian communities that are associated with forest habitat attributes are affected by silvicultural and other stand influences. Some species have specific habitat requirements, whereas others occupy a broad range of vegetative conditions. In general, bird species richness and density are positively related to stand foliage volume and diversity.

Management of New England northern hardwoods, spruce-fir, and eastern white pine for neotropical migratory birds

Publications Posted on: May 17, 2006
Habitat management for neotropical migratory birds must be based upon land capability, vegetation, successional patterns, response to treatments, landscape diversity, and speciedhabitat relationships. Neotropical migratory birds use diverse arrays of aquatic, early successional, and forest habitats. Management of neotropical migratory birds involves enhancement of habitat diversity.
