Description: This forest carnivore conservation assessment summarizes what is known about the biology and ecology of the American marten, fisher, lynx, and wolverine. It is the first step in ascertaining what information we need to develop a scientifically sound strategy for species conservation. Although this assessment implies that we know what information we need to prescribe necessary and sufficient conservation measures, the concepts of conservation biology used here give us a better basis for identifying "necessary" information than for identifying "sufficient" information. Thus, we are cautious in defining information needs for the development of conservation strategies.
