    Description

    A common goal of conservation and management plans is to maintain populations of species of conservation concern at some historic level that was a product of environmental conditions at a time when they were less influenced by humans than at present (e.g., Wade 1993, Reijnders 1994, Polacheck et al. 1999). Conservation planning also includes consideration of the distribution, abundance, and reproductive success of a species, all of which are affected by both the amount and spatial pattern of habitat (Donovan et al. 1995, Trzcinski et al. 1999, Pidgeon et al. 2003). However, in regions like Wisconsin, USA, where land use changes have been rapid and pronounced in the last 150 years (White and Mladenoff 1994, Radeloff et al. 1999), studying population demographics only in the recent period (1965 – present) for which most population trend data are available provides only a narrow view of species-habitat relationships. In this work, we have fused the fields of spatial and historical ecology to provide a perspective that includes an estimate of a bird species’ distribution just prior to Euroamerican settlement (~1850).
