Key Features of Early Seral Habitats for Wildlife Joan Hagar USGS-FRESC Matt Lee
Following Natural Disturbance... Structure –Legacy trees and snags –Open (low tree density) –Large wood Composition –Herbs and Grasses –Shrubs –Deciduous hardwoods Bob Altman
Species associated with closed canopy forest also use early seral habitats… IF appropriate habitat elements are available
Species that specialize on conifers Red Tree Vole Hemlock Looper Red Crossbill
Many conifer forest associates rely on diversity of plants Spruce Grouse
Elements of Quality Early Seral Habitat
Residual trees and snags Matt Lee D. Vesely
Cavity-nesters in burned forests Fire-killed snags are important resource for foraging and nesting Many species respond negatively to salvage logging
D. Vesely Early Seral Habitat for Reptiles Basking Prey
Dead Wood as Refugia D. Vesely
Plant Diversity = Food Resources Foliage Nectar Fruits Seeds
Plant Diversity: foundation of food webs
Arthropods Insect diversity correlated with plant diversity Deciduous species support more insects Influence of deciduous litter on soil food webs?
Importance of Early Seral Broadleaf Communities to Avian Biodiversity
30 Year Trend for Swainsons Thrush from Tillamook S.F. BBS Route
Creating Early Seral Habitat?
Effects of Conifer-centric Forest Management on Early Seral Habitat Fewer residual structures Altered vegetation composition –Alters patterns of food abundance –Reduces diversity of food resources –Alters food webs Reduced temporal span
Consequences of reduced temporal span of early seral habitats Limit on shrub size and age Shortens duration of shrubby habitat Reduced persistence of shrubs into mid- aged forests
Restoration of Late Seral Forest Emphasizes large trees Size limit on harvest area on federal lands What will understory look like?
