Silviculture applies theories and models from population ecology and biometrics to predict forest development. Two predominate. Size–density theory implies that in plant populations – such as a stand of trees – growth reaches a point where for some trees to get . Postfire Logging as a Knee-Jerk Response. Three things are just about guaranteed every fire season: (1) forests will burn over large areas, occasionally reaching megafire proportions under extreme conditions (see Chapter 2); (2) land managers will proclaim burn areas to be disasters in need of “restoration,” proposing logging and tree planting to speed up “recovery;” and (3 Cited by: 2.
Ecological succession is the process of change in the species structure of an ecological community over time. The time scale can be decades (for example, after a wildfire), or even millions of years after a mass extinction.. The community begins with relatively few pioneering plants and animals and develops through increasing complexity until it becomes stable or self-perpetuating as a climax. Tom Wessels is an ecologist and the author of Reading the Forested Landscape and Forest Forensics. He is the director of the Environmental Biology program at Antioch New England Graduate School. Brian D. Cohen is a printmaker, artist, teacher, and 5/5(1).

Seral Stages across Forested Landscapes: Relationships to Biodiversity Citation: Yearsley, K. and J. Parminter Seral Stages across Forested Landscapes: Relationships to Biodiversity B.C. Min. For., Res. Prog. Extension Note 8 p. Abstract: Various plants and animals rely on different forest ecosystem "stages" to meet their habitat needs.
An old-growth forest — also termed primary forest, virgin forest, primeval forest, late seral forest, or forest primeval — is a forest that has attained great age without significant disturbance and thereby exhibits unique ecological features and might be classified as a climax community.
Old-growth features Seral stages across forested landscapes book diverse tree-related structures that provide diverse wildlife habitat that.

The Interagency Mapping and Assessment Project (IMAP), a partnership between federal and state agencies, is developing mid-scale vegetation data and state and transition models (STM) for comparing the likely outcomes of alternative management policies on forested landscapes across the Pacific Northwest Region.
In an STM, acres within a forested ecosystem transition between. However, Pacific Northwest forested landscapes are deficit of late seral forest (DeMeo et al. and there is concern that interactions of increasing temperatures, drought, and other stressors.

Complex early seral forests (CESFs) occupy potentially forested sites after a stand-replacement disturbance and before re-establishment of a closed-forest canopy.
Such young forests contain numbers and kinds of biological legacies missing from those produced by commercial forestry operations. In the Sierra Nevada of California, CESFs are most often produced by mixed-severity Cited by: Download the Northern Highland chapter [PDF] of the Ecological Landscapes of Wisconsin.

Biodiversity conservation 'Seral stages across forested landscapes. We can think of forests as multiscale multispecies networks, constantly evolving toward a climax or potential natural community—the successional process-pattern of natural regeneration that exhibits sensitivity to initial conditions.
