    Description

    In this chapter, we summarize current knowledge about the effects of fire, logging, and grazing on coniferous forest birds and their habitats. We critically review the results of studies evaluating how these individual factors influence bird numbers, species diversity, nesting success, and habitat use in ponderosa pine forests. Documented and potential interactions among fire, fire exclusion, logging, livestock grazing, and range management are discussed in relation to habitat structure, succession, and avian use. Finally, we outline some areas where further research is needed to better understand the effects of fire, logging, grazing, and their interactions on birds and their habitats in Southwestern ponderosa pine forests.
