Abstract:To better understand the response of wildlife populations to forest management activities under the wildlife action plan, Segment 5 of the Forest Campaign was devised to meet the following objectives (1 September 2014 through 31 August 2015): 1) Continue monitoring protocols that measure the response of forest wildlife to various forest management tools that include, but are not limited to, thinning, fire, re-forestation that reduces forest fragmentation, and the removal of invasive exotic plant species; 2) Use a “before-after-treatment-control” monitoring framework (with replication) in a number of sites across Illinois to begin documenting the effects of forest management on populations of forest- and woodland-dwelling birds; 3) Identify existing and begin developing new demonstration sites that highlight successful forest management techniques and actions, and that can be used to inform and educate various constituencies.
