Title: The Starkey project: long-term research for long-term management solutions.

Author: Quigley, Thomas M.; Wisdom, Michael J.

Date: 2004

Source: In: Transactions of the 69th North American Wildlife and Natural Resources Conference: 443-454

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: The Starkey Project is a unique, long-term research program designed to study the effects of key resource uses of national forests on mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus) and elk (Cervus elaphus) habitats and populations located at the Starkey Experimental Forest and Range (Starkey). The purpose of the project was to fill knowledge gaps that posed difficult impediments to effective management of ungulates and to facilitate transfer of this knowledge in mediums most useful to managers. The original studies were completed in the 1990s, but research to understand the effects of emerging resource uses on deer and elk continues today. In addition, new studies are underway to understand the role of these ungulates as disturbance agents that can dramatically alter the ecological patterns and processes in forest ecosystems.
