Author: Short, Henry L.; Hestbeck, Jay B.; DeGraaf, Richard M.;
Source: Northeastern Research Station, manual on cd
Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)
Description: Describes how ECOSEARCH species-habitat models are developed using information about the natural history of species, habitat descriptions, and specific descriptors for soils, topography, water regimes, and vertical habitat structure. Also, examples are provided that demonstrate the impacts of: 1)converting a wooded swamp into a recreational lake with adjoining golf course and housing lots in western Massachusetts; 2)converting a mature forest to earlier successional stages for woodcock management on a national wildlife refuge; and 3)varying logging practices on a national forest. ECOSEARCH was developed as a first step to a testable, scientific basis for ecosystem management.
