Description: This study was designed as an experiment to test how bird populations in an extensively forested landscape respond to small (group and single-tree selection) and large (clearcut) openings. Our objectives are to test the landscape-level effects of even-aged and uneven-aged forest management relative to no-harvest management on population density and reproductive success for forest-interior and early-successional bird species. Pre-treatment data were gathered during the period 1991 through 1995, treatments were applied in 1996 and early 1997, and post-treatment data have been collected from 1997 through the present. Immediately following treatment, populations of forest-interior species declined on all study sites. Post-treatment, forest-interior species responded both positively and negatively to the even-aged and uneven-aged treatments. For early-successional species, changes in density were positive in response to both even-aged and uneven-aged treatment types. Neither nest predation rates nor nest parasitism rates increased following treatment. From a landscape-level perspective, our findings indicate that the short-term effects of even-aged management are mixed, positive and negative, for forest-interior species and that the response by early-successional species is greater for even-aged than for uneven-aged management.
