DescriptionThe increasing proximity of human development to forest lands and the extent of forest fragmentation caused by this development are major concerns for natural resource managers. Forest fragmentation affects the biodiversity of native flora and fauna, hydrologic processes, and management opportunities. Knowing the extent and location of forest fragmentation and proximity to human development is important in understanding these impacts. In southern New England, the Northeastern Forest Inventory and Analysis unit has initiated data collection on the extent and location of forest fragmentation and proximity to human development during phase one (photointerpretation) of the inventory process.
