Red-headed Woodpecker Density and Productivity in Relation to Time Since Fire in Burned Pine Forests
Pages: 15-25
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.0402015

Red-headed woodpecker (Melanerpes erythrocephalus) populations are declining range wide, and fire is an important process necessary for creating their habitat throughout their range. In order to evaluate the effect of fire on the density and reproduction of this species, we examined nesting activities of red-headed woodpeckers from 2001 to 2005 in landscapes dominated by fires of different ages.  [Read More]

Indirect Effects of Fire Severity on Avian Communities in Ponderosa Pine and Aspen Forests in Western North America: A Review
Page: 133
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.0402133

We evaluated the impact of fire severity and related spatial and vegetative parameters on small mammal populations in 2 yr- to 15 yr-old burns in Yosemite National Park, California, USA. We also developed habitat models that would predict small mammal responses to fires of differing severity. We hypothesized that fire severity would influence the abundances of small mammals through changes in vegetation composition, structure, and spatial habitat complexity.  [Read More]
