The effects of disturbance and succession on wildlife habitat and animal communities [Chapter 11]

Publications Posted on: April 21, 2015
This chapter discusses the study of disturbance and succession as they relate to wildlife. As such, the discussion is confined to those disturbance processes that change the physical attributes of habitat, leading to a postdisturbance trajectory. However, even with this narrowing of the scope of disturbances discussed, there remain formidable obstacles prior to any coherent discussion of disturbance.
