Item Identification

Title: Reference stand condition - Effects of Thinning on Forest Structure important to the recovery of ESA-listed species
Short Name: Reference stand condition (Effects of Thinning on Forest Structure important to the recovery of ESA-listed species)
Status: Completed
Creation Date: 2008-01-01
Publication Date: 2018-10-22
Abstract:

This study evaluates the effects of thinning regimes designed to accelerate the development of late-successional forest structure for the benefit of salmon and other ESA-listed species. The focus is to ensure that proposed thinning activities (primarily by federal agencies such as BLM and USFS) do not delay the recovery of habitat important to these ESA-listed species. Currently thinning actions undertaken by BLM and USFS have resulted in the substantial delay in the recovery of instream habitat. The results from this study are intended to be provided to these agencies so that they can make management decisions consistent with the restoration and recovery of habitat important to ESA-listed species, in particular, instream habitat.

How Will the Data Be Protected from Accidental or Malicious Modification or Deletion Prior to Receipt by the Archive?:

The Northwest Fisheries Science Center facilitates backup and recovery of all data and IT components which are managed by IT Operations through the capture of static (point-in-time) backup data to physical media. Once data is captured to physical media (every 1-3 days), a duplicate is made and routinely (weekly) transported to an offsite archive facility where it is maintained throughout the data's applicable life-cycle.
