Ecology and management of Larix forests: a look ahead
USDA Forest Service, Intermountain Research Station
Bird occurrences were evaluated under four stand conditions in western larch/Douglas-fir forests: clearcut, partial cut, unlogged (fragmented), and contiguous forest. Frequencies were noted for foraging guilds, tree gleaners, flycatchers, nesting guilds, tree drillers, and primary cavity nesters. Managers should consider a diversity of habitat conditions if maintaining habitat for bird species is an objective.
