It is well supported in ecology literature that land management focused on single outputs tends to simplify complex ecosystems. Although many papers have shown that forest management that occurs solely for commodity production may not yield patterns within the natural range of variation, fewer studies have questioned forest management activities that focus primarily on single species of wildlife. It is conceivable that forest management for specific wildlife population outputs may also…Continue
