There are three parts to recall — modifying the mind map, answering the set of questions listed at the beginning of the module, and summarizing the module.

  1. Begin by returning to the mind map that you started at the beginning of this module and using a different colored pen add what you have learned during this module.

This may mean that you add facts or ideas, modify some, or correct others.

This is an important step in your learning process. You need to recognize what you learned, what you have modified, and what you had to correct because of misinformation or up-dated information.

  1. The following questions were listed at the beginning of this module. Now that you have completed the module (and without looking back), re-answer them. Are your answers more complete, now?

  1. Are you now familiar with maintaining stand level biodiversity?

  • If not, what do you have to do so that you can?

  • Where else can you go to find more information?

  1. Can you discuss the general biodiversity management considerations?

  • If not, what do you have to do so that you can?

  • Where else can you go to find more information?

  1. Why we should manage our forests for biodiversity?

  2. What should forest managers consider when managing biodiversity?

  3. What do you now know about forest edge and interior habitat or patch size?

  4. What do you now know about the relationship between natural disturbances and cutblock size?

  1. Use a ladder diagram to summarize this module. Label the first step of the ladder general biodiversity management considerations.

    Label the following four steps (major heading and subheadings) on the ladder:

  • General biodiversity management considerations
     
  • Forest Edge and Interior Habitat (Patch Size)
     
  • Forest Management Practices to manage for edge and interior habitat
     
  • Natural disturbances and cutblock size
     
     

iconTransfer of learning

 
  1. Think of ways you can adapt/modify any of the ideas or the philosophy that underpins the ideas from this module to your private life.

  2. If a business acquaintance were to ask you about what you thought forest managers should be considering today regarding biodiversity of forests, what would you tell that person?

     

Reflections

 
  1. What are you still unclear about in this module?

  2. What new information did you learn?

  3. Managing biodiversity is to (a) ________ as a __________ is to (a) ________

    • Here is an example, a STOVE is to a COOK as a KNIFE is to a CARVER

    • This relationship can show that:

      • One idea is the opposite of the other (New is to Old as Small is to Large)

      • One idea is similar to the other (Strong is to powerful as _______ is to __

      • One idea names a part of the other (Sleeve is to blouse as _____ is to ___

      • One idea names a type of the other (Bear is to animal as ______ is to ___

      • One idea tells what the other does or is used for (Tractor is to plow as __

    • Try it, it can be fun but also very meaningful
