DescriptionThe maintenance and conservation of fish and wildlife populations in landscapes managed for timber production is a contemporary stewardship requirement and a challenge for forest managers. Best management practices (BMPs) have been developed to meet these challenges. Most BMPs were developed starting in the 1970s so the full impact and the success of those BMPs are not fully understood. In the aquatic realm, BMPs have focused on harvest restrictions in riparian zones and on techniques for minimizing sediment from roads and road-stream crossings.
