Author(s): Sullivan, Thomas P. (Applied Mammal Research Institute)
Subject: Ecology, Forestry, Wildlife
Series: Forest Investment Account (FIA) - Forest Science Program

Abstract

To determine the influence of stand density and optimum nutrition on tree growth, wildlife habitat, stand structure, relative habitat use by ungulates, and range forage in young lodgepole pine stands. Managing for a diversity of forest stands (habitats) will also provide a continuous flow and diversity of wood products. This project has direct relevance to the sustainability of these practices and their utility in certification processes.
