A companion volume to "Techniques for Wildlife Habitat Management of Wetlands", this book provides an extensive compilation of techniques for habitat manipulation, which are designed to improve the biodiversity of uplands ecosystems for edge and interior game and nongame wildlife. It offers land managers, ecologists, and conservationists the latest structural and nonstructural methods for natural and cultural habitat improvements on forest lands, woodlots, rangelands, and farmlands. This practical manual includes expert discussions of guilds, minimum viable populations, edge vs. interior habitats, size of reserves and ecological succession, plus helpful guidance on how to alter plant succession for biodiversity by indirect and direct methods. This book should be a valuable tool in helping professionals maintain a healthy ecosystem and to restore or produce ideal populations of wildlife.
