                A Spatially Explicit Decision Support Model for Restoration of Forest Bird Habitat – Twedt et al. (2006)

 

Latest Plan Revision: 1999

 

Objectives Baseline Year: Variable

 

Population Objectives: Variable

 

Habitat Objectives: The PIF Plan details habitat requirements of priority species/guilds, and prescribes Bird Conservation Areas of three threshold size classes (4,000-8,000 ha, 8,00-40,000 ha, >40,000 ha) to meet priority species needs.  Twedt et al. (2006) identifies high priority geographies for reforestation for high priority forest-nesting birds based on existing forest habitat and an assumed premium on increasing forest core.
