Long Term Population Monitoring in Relation to Habitat Availability for Marbled Murrelets in TFL 54 - Clayoquot Sound

Author(s): McMillan, Don (International Forest Products Ltd.)
Subject: Biodiversity, Ecology, Wood Science
Series: Forest Investment Account (FIA) - Forest Science Program


We propose to develop an Adaptive Management research program to compare different levels of harvesting between similar watersheds (i.e., similar size and composition of tree species, biogeoclimatic zones, etc.). The long-term monitoring program will be used as a direct measure, using radar and audio/visual surveys, of the effect of harvesting on Marbled Murrelet populations. Similar size areas containing suitable potential murrelet nesting will be compared under a series of forest harvesting scenarios.
