Title: Davis late-successional reserve assessment
Author: Crescent Ranger District (Or.)
Abstract: Identifies six areas of existing and historic vegetative conditions and the wildlife species that could logically be managed to provide a similar habitat type and function: mixed conifer for northern spotted owl (54%), mixed conifer for bald eagle (8%), mixed conifer/lodgepole with dual connectivity function (3%), mixed conifer/lodgepole/ponderosa for great grey owl and/or bald eagle (6%), lodgepole with/without riparian for black-backed woodpecker and/or riparian habitat (16%), and mountain hemlock for wolverine and black-backed woodpecker (13%). The six areas were then assessed according to the following criteria: the existing habitat function within and outside of the LSR, the effects of past timber harvesting on the desired habitat function, the risk of catastrophic loss of existing old growth due to fire, insects, and disease; existing human uses within the area; and other factors influencing the attainment of the desired late and old structured ecosystems. The immediate need in the LSR was determined to be reducing the risk of catastrophic loss in a portion of the existing late and old-structured stands that are imminently susceptible to insect attack or wildfire.
Description: 424 pp. Tables, maps, figures, appendix, references, glossary. The Reserve lies on 48,890 acres located east of the Oregon Cascade Crest in the Crescent Ranger District. Captured May 14, 2007.
