Title: Effects of timber harvests on invertebrate biomass and avian nest success

Author: Duguay, Jeffrey P.; Wood, Petra Bohall; Miller, Gary W.

Date: 2000

Source: Wildlife Society Bulletin. 28(4): 1123-1131.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Concerns over declining songbird populations have led to investigations of effects of various timber management practices on breeding songbirds. We assessed the influence of 2 types of practices, two-age and clearcutting, on invertebrate biomass and avian daily nest survival in the Monongahela National Forest of West Virginia during summers of 1995 and 1996. We also examined relationships between invertebrate biomass, avian daily nest survival, and wood thrush (Hylocichla mustelina) nestling growth rates.

Keywords: insect biomass, nest predation, nest survival, silviculture, timber management
