Description:

In an ecosystem management context, management for lynx must occur in the context of the needs of other species, watershed health, and a variety of products, outputs, and uses. This chapter presents a management model based on the restoration of historical patterns and processes. We argue that this model is sustainable in a formal sense, practical, and likely to provide for the needs of a variety of species, including lynx. Because our knowledge of lynx biology and disturbance ecology is limited, implementation of this model will be experimental and must be accompanied by a well-planned monitoring program.

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