    Description

    Twenty years after publication of a report on wildlife habitat in managed east-side forests, Pacific Northwest Research Station scientists Evelyn Bull, Catherine Parks, and Torolf Torgersen, are updating that report and discovering that the current direction for providing wildlife habitat on public forest lands does not reflect findings from research since 1979. More snags and dead wood structures are required for foraging, denning, nesting, and roosting that previously thought. In this issue of Science Findings, Bull, Parks, and Torgersen, share their latest findings, which include the fact that snags and logs are colonized by organisms representing a broader array of plants, invertebrates, and vertebrates than was previously recognized.
