Development and evaluation of analytic approaches for understanding and predicting wildlife responses to forest management and large-scale disturbances

Projects Posted on: May 19, 2015
We are integrating multiple datasets, statistical modeling tools, and simulation approaches to quantify habitat and predict population responses by woodpecker and other wildlife species of conservation concern to natural disturbance (wildfire, bark beetle outbreaks) and forest management activities to inform adaptive management of dry conifer forests.
