    Description

    Linear strips of forest along intermittent and perennial streams, commonly called streamside zones (SZs), are frequently retained for watershed protection and wildlife habitat enhancement in southern pine forests when adjacent stands are harvested. However, little is known regarding wildlife communities associated with SZs, particularly in relation to varying SZ widths and interactions with surrounding habitat matrices. The objective of this study was to assess relationships between forest bird communities and SZs of various widths within pine plantations of several age/structural classes within the Ouachita Mountains of Arkansas.
