Description: Southern forests are very productive for wildlife as well as wood fiber. User recreation demands for game and nongame wildlife and fish continue to increase as human populations grow in the sunbelt. The main determinant of wildlife populations is suitability of forest habitat and the primary manipulator of the habitat is the forester. Forestry decisions and practices determine habitat suitability for wildlife communities and ultimately wildlife populations. With this publication we plan to demonstrate how southern forests can be managed for the myriad of wildlife species. General topics in the publication relating to wildlife communities include economics of accommodating wildlife and fish, impact of specific forestry practices, special techniques, agency policy and practices, and prospects for the future. Although earlier drafts of these papers were edited, the content of each final manuscript was the responsibility of each author. We thank Ronald Thill, Alexander Zale, Hugh Black, Lowell Halls, Roger Baker, George Hurst, and James Neal for assistance in reviewing these manuscripts. This publication is from the proceedings of the Wildlife and Fish Ecology Technical Session, 1986 Society of American Foresters National Convention, Birmingham, Alabama.
