Shaping Stands to Enhance Habitat Diversity
The shape of forest stands or openings is a facet of habitat diversity and can be silviculturally manipulated and related to use by wildlife. One index assesses stand shape by relating perimeter to area. A means to determine useful values of the index considers distance to the edge from points within the stand. The shape of existing or proposed stands can be assessed for adequacy of meeting particular wildlife management goals.
