DescriptionIn conjunction with phase II bird and small mammal studies, we measured an array of habitat features in 20 stands representing 4 replications of 4 pine regeneration treatments (clearcut/plant, pine-hardwood shelterwood, pine-hardwood single-tree selection, and pine-hardwood group selection) plus 4 untreated controls. At study initiation, all stands were > 60 years old, > 34.6 acres in size, located on southerly aspects, and had slopes generally < 20 percent. Stands were harvested during the summer of 1993. Habitat measurements were collected during late winter of 1995, 1997, and 1999. Here we summarize initial responses of several key wildlife habitat parameters to these five treatments.
