    Description

    Forest management to maintain native wildlife communities is an important, yet complex objective. The complexities stem from two primary sources: habitat requirements for native species are diverse and span multiple spatial scales and seral stages, and habitat is a species-specific concept making multispecies community response difficult to predict. Given these uncertainties, restoration objectives frequently lack target conditions for the multitude of species that comprise the various vertebrate communities, and monitoring plans fail to integrate across multiple scales and habitats.
