Title: Use of microcomputers for planning and managing silviculture habitat relationships.

Author: Marcot, B.G.; McNay, R.S.; Page, R.E.;

Date: 1988

Source: Gen. Tech. Rep. PNW-GTR-228. Portland, OR: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Research Station. 19 p

Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)

Description: Microcomputers aid in monitoring, modeling, and decision support for integrating objectives of silviculture and wildlife habitat management. Spreadsheets, data bases, statistics, and graphics programs are described for use in monitoring. Stand growth models, modeling languages, area and geobased information systems, and optimization models are discussed for use in modeling. Decision aids and expert systems for decision support are examined. Advantages of microcomputers include availability, transportability, and usability. Disadvantages include the building of unvalidated models, lack of software standards, and need for updating data bases. We present a case example of an expert system that evaluates regional priorities for managing habitat for black-tailed deer in coastal British Columbia.

Keywords: Microcomputers, stand growth models, wildlife habitat models, expert systems, monitoring, inventory, decision support
