Hurteau, Sarah; Dickson, Brett G.; Sisk, Thomas D.; Block, William M. 2008. Chapter 10: Avian community responses to forest thinning and prescribed surface fire, alone and in combination. In: van Riper and Sogge, editors. The Colorado Plateau III. Tucson, AZ: University of Arizona Press. p. 185-196.

The U.S. Forest Service and other federal agencies treated more than 2.8 million ha of forested land between 2001 and 2003 under the Healthy Forest Restoration Act (USDA Forest Service 2004). Because many more areas across our landscape are slated for fuel reduction treatments, understanding how wildlife communities will respond is essential to conserving biodiversity, yet little is understood about the ecological consequences of such treatments.

Keywords: avian community, forest thinning, prescribed surface fire, fuel reduction treatments, Healthy Forest Restoration Act
