  • Relationship Between Food Habits & Activity Patterns of Pine Martens
    Pine martens (Martes americana) consume a variety of food types annually but seasonal foraging is restricted to a subset of available prey. Winter foods include chickarees (Tamiasciurus douglasii), voles (Microtus spp.), snowshoe hares (Lepus americanus), and flying squirrels (Glaucomys sabrinus), whereas ground-dwelling sciurids (Spermophilus spp. and Eu- tamias spp.) comprise the bulk of the diet during the remainder of the ...
  • Marten Habitat Preferences in the Northern Sierra Nevada
    Escalating harvest of remnant old-growth forests in the Pacific Northwest has precipitated concern for marten (Martes amaericana) as an old-growth dependent species (Meslow et al. 1981). Although recent studies have increased our understanding of marten habitat requirements (Koehler adn Hornocker 1977, Soutiere 1979, Steventon and Major 1982), little in-depth research has been done in the Pacific states. Also, the influences ...
  • Predatory Behavior of Pine Martens
    Although the composition of diets of pine marten (Martes americana) is well studied (see Zielinski et al., 1983) direct observations of marten predatory behavior are rare. During a 15-month investigation of marten ecology at Sagehen Creek, California (Spencer et al., 1983; Zielinski et al., 1983), we sometimes observed marten in acts of predation. Observations involved five marked marten and one ...
  • Recovery Research for the Endangered Pacific Pocket Mouse: An Overview of Collaborative Studies
    The critically endangered Pacific pocket mouse (Perognathus longimembris pacificus), feared extinct for over 20 years, was “rediscovered” in 1993 and is now documented at four sites in Orange and San Diego Counties, California. Only one of these sites is considered large enough to be potentially self-sustaining without active intervention. In 1998, I gathered a team of biologists to initiate several ...
  • Forest fragmentation of the conterminous United States: Assessing forest intactness through road density and spatial characteristics
    Over the past few centuries, widespread disturbance of native forests of the conterminous United States has dramatically altered the composition, structure, extent, and spatial pattern of forestlands (Curtis 1956, Whitney 1994). These forests have been either permanently replaced by other land uses or degraded to varying degrees by unsustainable forestry practices, forest fragmentation, exotic species introduction, or alteration of natural ...
