Do we create ecological traps when trying to emulate natural disturbances? A test on songbirds of the northern hardwood forest
Abstract:Forest management inspired from natural disturbances is often claimed to have more benign effects on biodiversity than more traditional approaches but this premise has rarely been tested. In the northern hardwood forest, selection harvesting could be seen as a surrogate for the combined effects of windthrow, moderate ice storms, and senescence.
