A combination of simulation modelling and field study are being used to examine ecological implications of timber harvest rate and pattern on selected vertebrate species. Emphasis is on assessing harvest strategies in response to the mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae) in the Nadina Forest District. Short-term management decisions may have immediate or mid- to long-term implications. The study focus is on species that have been generally associated with characteristics of mid- to late-seral forest, and are space constrained (have defined home-ranges) and thus are potentially sensitive to habitat arrangement at that home-range scale (termed habitat dilution or density).
