Buffer Strips and Tree Windthrow: Proglem or Habitat Enhancement?
MetadataShow full item record
Martin will discuss windthrow in buffer strips. He will compare the effects of logging to the effects of storm exposed landscapes. Next, he will ask: What are the effects of tree windthrow in buffer strips on fish habitat? What is the magnitude and duration of habitat change? Martin will present research that illustrates these questions. He will consider the idea that harvest management patterns could be concentrated in geographic areas that are naturally less prone to windthrow. Overall, this approach may increase fish habitat.
