DescriptionWe identify wetlands, riparian woodlands and shrublands, green ash woodlands, aspen forests, pinyon-juniper woodlands, and pure and mixed forests of ponderosa pine as important wildlife habitats in the US. Forest Service's Rocky Mountain Region. The relationships of vertebrate species to each of these types are discussed relative to habitat requirements and species conservation. The importance of late-successional lodgepole pine, Douglas-fir, and spruce-fir forests is discussed in the context of regional landscapes and the maintenance of biological diversity.
