    Description

    Many forest-dwelling species rely on both terrestrial and aquatic habitat for their survival. These species, including rare and little-understood amphibians and arthropods, live in and around headwater streams and disperse overland to neighboring headwater streams. Forest management policies that rely on riparian buffer strips and structurebased management—practices meant to preserve habitat—address only some of these habitat needs. They generally do not consider the overland connectivity necessary for these species to successfully move across a landscape to maintain genetically diverse populations.

     

    based on science by Kelly Burnett, and Deanna Olson.
