Title: Limited salvage logging effects on forest regeneration after moderate-severity windthrow
Author: Peterson, C.J.;

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication
Recent conceptual advances address forest response to multiple disturbances within a brief time period, providing an ideal framework for examining the consequences of natural disturbances followed by anthropogenic management activities. The combination of two or more disturbances in a short period may produce ‘‘ecological surprises,’’ and models predict a threshold of cumulative disturbance severity above which forest composition will be drastically altered and regeneration may be impaired. Salvage logging (the harvesting of timber after natural disturbances; also called ‘‘salvaging’’ or ‘‘sanitary logging’’) is common, but there have been no tests of the manner in which salvaging after natural wind disturbance affects woody plant regeneration.
