Fuels planning: science synthesis and integration; environmental consequences fact sheet 4: wildlife responses to fuels treatments: key considerations

Author(s): David S. Pilliod
Year Published: 2004
Description:

Managers face a difficult task in predicting the effects of fuels treatments on wildlife populations, mostly because information on how animals respond to fuels treatments is scarce or does not exist. This paper discusses key considerations-aspects of an animal's ecology and available information-that, despite the scarcity of information, may make predictions of effects possible.
