A Wildlife Brief for the Clearcut Logging of Douglas-fir
Abstract:Objections to clearcutting of Douglas-fir in northwest Oregon have included possible detrimental effects upon wildlife. Observations recorded here show that the abiotic and vegetative changes occurring from staggered clearcut logging are temporary and beneficial to forest wildlife. Many species, from insects to big game, increase.
