DescriptionMany landscapes in the West are a patchwork of federal, state, forest industry and nonindustrial private forestlands. Each of these owners has a particular set of goals and practices that shapes the structure, species and dynamics of forest vegetation on their lands. Consequently, the pattern of landownership can have a major effect on the distribution of plants and animals, and their habitats. The pattern of ownership is also important because the organisms that live on those landscapes and the ecological processes that influence their habitat do not stay within ownerships. For example, salmon, owls, fire, landslides and debris flows can move across ownership boundaries.
