DescriptionForesters and wildlife managers have long known that forest management activities have impacts on wildlife communities (see Smith 1962). Research has also shown that private landowners often cite provision of wildlife habitat as one of their main reasons for owning forest land (Hodge 1996, Jones et al. 1995, Kluender et al. 1999). Direct census of wildlife populations is challenging and expensive, and until the late 1980s, publications developed to provide information on how forest management activities can benefit wildlife tended to focus on single species, especially game species, and how to manage their habitats, such as deer wintering areas in northern regions (see Berner and Gysel 1969, Boer 1978, Larson et al. 1978).
