Description:

Disturbance dynamics differ in the three subregions of the North American boreal forest (taiga, western United States, and eastern United States) where lynx are found, resulting in a range of potential effects on lynx populations. Fire severity tends to be high in most of the forest types where lynx habitat occurs, although subsequent succession will differ among the subregions. Other disturbance dynamics involve insects, disease, wind, and human ownership and use, such as logging, mining, agriculture, and fire suppression. The author addresses three general lynx management implications based on disturbance dynamics.

Keywords: lynx, snowshoe hares, ecology, habitat, northern lynx, southern lynx, lynx management
