    Description

    Forest managers often prescribe silvicultural methods based on how effectively they mimic the natural disturbance agents that have historically shaped the forests they manage. On Indiana state forests, selection systems are used on most harvested acreage and appear to structurally mimic the effects of naturally occurring, gap-forming disturbances affecting individual trees, groups, or small patches of trees. Forest bats often forage within canopy gaps and along the edges of openings; however, it is unclear whether bats use harvested stands and canopy gaps in intact forest similarly on Indiana's state forests.
