    Description

    Selection of forest stands by 18 clans of foraging red-cockaded woodpeckers was studied in their year-round home ranges. The foraging use of 276 stands relative to their availability within the home ranges was compared to several stand characteristics. Selection among stands with similar characteristics was highly vairable and red-cockadeds foraged in stands with a great variety of conditions. Stand selection increased significantly as density of pines > 24 cm d.b.h increased and as basal area of hardwoods > 12 cm d.b.h decreased, but hses relationships were weak. Beyond 30 years, stand age was not a significant factor in selection.
