Description: We developed spatially-explicit bird-habitat models with a variety of site-specific and landscape parameters to predict avian species distributions on southern Appalachian National Forests to aid National Forests with bird conservation planning. These models can be used to assess the effects of different forest management alternatives on long-term population viability for a variety of avian species. Unlike past planning efforts on National Forests which were based on qualitative attempts at interpreting changes in forest type and age class distributions on avian species, use of spatially explicit habitat models can provide quantitative estimates of how habitat availability is changing for a given species and also evaluate the significance of management decisions on spatial configurations of avian habitats. Using the Chestnut-sided Warbler (Dendroica pensylvanica) as an example, we demonstrate how these models work and how different forest management alternatives may affect Chestnut-sided Warbler habitat in the future.
