About this book

Balancing species-specific management with biodiversity conservation concerns, Wildlife Habitat Management integrates silvicultural and forest planning techniques with principles of habitat ecology and conservation biology. The updated edition includes six new chapters, five added case studies, and new appendices on measuring and interpreting habitat elements as well as on using wildlife habitat relationship models. The chapters cover a broad range of topics including habitat selection, management, and patterns; forest composition; dynamics of disturbance ecology; approaches to manage biodiversity; riparian and wetland area management; landscape management; assessment and prioritization policies; monitoring techniques; and legal/ethical issues.
