DescriptionProcedures for evaluating the suitability of forest lands for the breeding habitat of individual nongame bird species and entire avian communities are presented. A multiresource inventory of South Carolina's forest resources, conducted by Renewable Resources Evaluation (formerly Forest Survey), provides the necessary habitat data. Nine nongame bird species, representative ofa broad range of habitat types, are selected as examples for evaluation. Habitat descriptions for these species were obtained from the literature and the screening criteria were formulated. The resulting estimates of habitat extent, condition, and distribution are presented.
