Title: Roosevelt Elk Selection of Temperate Rain Forest Seral Stages in Western Washington

Year: 1993

Author(s): Greg L. Schroer; Kurt J. Jenkins; Bruce B. Moorhead

Type: Journal Article

Description:
We studied habitat selection by Roosevelt elk (Cervus elaphus roosevelti) in a temperate rain forest in the lower Quuets River Valley of the western Olympic Peninsul, Washington from June 1986-June 1987. Elk annual home ranges included predominantly unlogged forests protected within Olympic National Park and logged, regenerating forests adjacent to the park. Radio-collared elk selected valley floors during all seasons except winter, when elk frequently used an adjoining plateau 60 m above the flodplain. In winter, radio-collared elk selected 6-15 year-old clearcuts, which were available on the plateau. Elk selected mature deciduous forests of the valley floor during spring, summer, and autumn, and generally they selected old-age Sitka spruce forests during autumn and winter. Young clearcuts (1-5 years old) and even-aged, regenerated stands (16-150 years old) generally were avoided during all seasons.

Title: Clayoquot Sound Wildlife Sighting Survey 1993

Year: 1993

Author(s): Kumar Biswas

Type: Report (unpublished)

Description:
Introduction: In 1993, the Clayoquot Biosphere Project initiated a program to document wildlife sightings in Clayoquot Sound, Vancouver Island. The program was intended to determine which species are commonly sighted, in what season, and the location of prime habitat. The program relies on the participation of local residents, including charter boat skippers, pilots, kayak tour guides and tourists. A database of local knowledge of wildlife, developed from opportunistic sightings and regular field surveys, will assist in monitoring natural patterns and variation, and the impacts of human disturbance. Clayoquot Sound is the largest remaining tract of semi-intact coastal temperate rainforest on Vancouver Island. This provides an opportunity to collect wildlife sightings in the context of a natural ecosystem.

Title: Clayoquot Sound: An Introduction to Natural History Observations

Year: 1993

Author(s): Jennifer Bonnell; Ashley Dhanwant

Type: Student Paper

Description:
This study was undertaken to explore the methods and principles of natural history observation. Surveys were conducted of lake and river wildlife and conditions, and of inland plant diversity and distribution. Goldeneyes and mergansers were the most frequently observed bird species on the lake, while Western hemlock and red huckleberry dominated the inland vegetative ecosystem. The activity of several mammals was also observed and discussed in context to their habitat requirements. The sensitivity of the area in early Spring should be considered when scheduling human activity time frames in wilderness regions.

Title: Management for a Living Hesquiat Harbour

Year: 1992

Author(s): Jim Darling, Tonquin Research Inc.

Type: Proceedings

Description:
Introduction: This was the first of two workshops to develop protection, management, restoration and research programs for the Hesquiat Harbour region. The overall objective of the project is, "To protect and restore the living resources and ecosystems of Hesquiat territory to allow sustainable levels of harvest in the future." The main purpose of this workshop was to share information regarding the status and biology of natural resources and habitat in Hesquiat territory. It is intended to set the stage for a second workshop when a long term research program for Hesquiat territory will be developed. This workshop also focused on the development of studies which may be undertaken in the interim, before the long term program is developed, and on interim protection measures for Hesquiat territory to ensure that the overall objective of the program can be achieved.

Title: Coastal Temperate Rain Forests: Ecological Characteristics, Status and Distribution Worldwide

Year: 1992

Author(s): Jim Weigand; Andy Mitchell; Dennis Morgan

Type: Report (unpublished)

Description:
Ecotrust and Conservational International have prepared this document for the explicit purpose of soliciting comments from researchers and managers working in coastal temperate rain forests around the world. We have developed a global GIS database to assess the distribution and status of coastal temperate rain forests, and so that new information can be incorporated in the database as it becomes available. This report presents conflicting estimates of the areal extent of coastal temperate rain forests as a result of different methods and information sources. We hope that readers will inform us of any errors or additional data that would help us refine and update the global database, and to build future regional databases. This report includes preliminary maps illustrating the "original" extent of coastal temperate rain forests. We define original as post-glaciation, pre-human settlement. In many regions, this admittedly translates to pre-colonial settlement.

Title: Zooplankton on the west coast of Vancouver Island: distribution and availability to marine birds

Year: 1991

Author(s): David Mackas, Canadian Wildlife Service; Moira Galbraith, Canadian Wildlife Service

Type: Proceedings

Description:
Abstract: The outer coast of Vancouver Island is biologically highly productive because of large summer inputs of upwelled nutrients and resulting dense phytoplankton blooms. The resident zooplankton populations are well fed from spring through autumn; their seasonal cycle and spatial distribution are set largely by advective patterns and bathymetry. pp15-21.

Title: Factors affecting the distribution of kelp and its importance as a food source.

Year: 1991

Author(s): Robert DeWreede

Type: Proceedings

Description:
abstract: Kelp beds form a major habitat in many near-shore marine sites in British Columbia. The abundance and distribution of kelps are determined in part by such factors as salinity, light and temperature and by herbivores, such as sea urchins and limpets. Sea otters Enhydra lutris influence kelp distribution by consuming urchins. Together these factors determine the age (and hence size and stage) and structure of kelp stands. Birds are predators of organisms that live in kelp beds, but almost nothing is known of kelp-bird interactions in British Columbia. pp37-40.
