About this book

Combining concepts of forest and wildlife management, this book provides resources and research, practical field experience, and planning and inventory methods for sustaining forest wildlife populations. Beginning with background and definitions, it discusses land management activities, engineering, natural resource disciplines, and timber, wildlife, range, and watershed management techniques. It covers forest diversity, forest succession, healthy forest conditions, and forests as ecological systems. It also presents a wildlife data model of various forest species and forest cover types by region and state. An accompanying CD-ROM instructs on the practical application of this information.
