Old-growth Redwood ForestMarine and Terrestrial Habitat Relationships

Our geographically extensive and long-term data sets in both the marine and terrestrial habitats of the murrelet are unique. It has provided us the opportunity to model the habitat requirements of this special species at a landscape scale.

The use of Geographic Information Systems continues to improve our at-sea and forest research. Analyses continue to look at habitat relationships, including possible differences in offshore habitat use by juvenile versus adult murrelets in northern California.
