    Description

    Ponderosa pine forests are important because of their wide distribution, commercial value, and because they provide habitat for many plants and animals. Ponderosa pine forests are noted for their variety of passerine birds resulting from variation in forest composition and structure modified by past and present human use. Subsequent chapters discuss how ponderosa pine forests are associated with different types and number of passerine birds and how humans have modified these forests and affected its occupancy and use by passerine birds. This chapter discusses the ecology and dynamics of ponderosa pine forests and wildlife use in general and describes natural and human induced changes in the composition and structure of these forests.
