    Description

    Natural resource management in the United States is in a state of flux now more than any time in history. Many of the concerns about forest management are related to the enforcement of the Endangered Species Act. This act focuses forest management on preserving the habitat of a single species. But, for the northern goshawk (Accipiter gentilis) because it is a habitat generalist and a predator of over 50 birds and mammals, a multiple species approach was used for developing management recommendations. Even with this approach, however, several animal and plant species were not explicitly covered. To ensure that plant and animal species, known and unknown, are conserved and that ecosystem processes, elements, and functions are not overlooked, an ecosystem approach to managing lands occupied by northern goshawks appears to be appropriate. Large landscape units can be designated and analyzed at a variety of spatial and temporal scales offering treatment alternatives that sustain not only the northern goshawk but all forest components.
