RM-GTR-99: Snag habitat management: Proceedings of the symposium

Davis, Jerry W.; Goodwin, Gregory A.; Ockenfels, Richard A., tech. coords. 1983. Snag habitat management: Proceedings of the symposium. Gen. Tech. Rep. RM-GTR-99. Fort Collins, CO: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Forest and Range Experiment Station. 226 p.

These proceedings include 41 papers focusing attention on the need to integrate management of snags - dead or deteriorating trees critical to needs of cavity-dependent wildlife - with other resource uses and demands. Sessions concentrated on management, habitat and species requirements, and monitoring and modeling.

Keywords: snags, wildlife habitat, forest management
