Title: Bald Eagle Nesting Relative to Forestry Operations on MacMillan Bloedel Forest Lands

Year: 1989

Author(s): Elaine ONeil

Type: Academic Thesis

Description:
Portions of the Gulf Islands, Johnstone Strait and the west coast of Vancouver island were surveyed to determine the locations and productivity of nesting bald eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) and impacts of logging on nesting success. A total of 131 nests were located of which 43 were active. Of these,69 nests were surveyed on the ground to collect nest tree, site and stand data. Information on the distance to and impact of forestry practices was collected where possible. On average, no significant differences in bald eagle use of nests were found between disturbed and undisturbed areas. No significant differences in tree, site, and stand characteristics were found between active and inactive nests. There were significantly more young produced/active nest in undisturbed areas. Nest tree size was significantly larger in disturbed areas. Based on these findings and research in the U.S., interim guidelines are suggested for B.C. Future management directions should emphasize reaching consensus on the amount of habitat that should be retained in B.C., on identifying the most suitable habitat for eagles, and on monitoring the population to determine more thoroughly the impact of forest harvesting.

Title: An Experimental Transplant of Northern Abalone, Haliotis kamtschatkana, in Barkley Sound, British Columbia

Year: 1988

Author(s): B. Emmett; G. S. Jamieson

Type: Journal Article

Description:
The biological and economic feasibilities of transplanting northern abalone, Haliotis kamtschatkana, from exposed beds to two sites in sheltered, productive abalone habitat were investigated. After nine months, 39% and 72% of transplanted abalone were recovered at the two replicate sites. Recovery of tagged abalone at a control site, situated in the exposed source area, was 32%. Growth in shell length of transplanted abalone over the nine months averaged 7.8% whereas the average growth of non-transplanted controls was 3.7%, significantly less. There was little emigration of abalone from the transplant sites. The study concludes that it is feasible to transplant 50-100 mm H. kamtschatkana in order to enhance growth. The economic feasibility of transplants is dependent on site-specific recovery rates and the costs of harvesting seed abalone. The population dynamics of abalone in exposed beds and the long-term potential for enhancing abalone settlement by introducing broodstock to deplete areas are two aspects which now require investigation.

Title: The Seen and Unseen World of the Fallen Tree

Year: 1984

Type: Report (published)

Description:
Large, fallen trees in various stages of decay contribute much-needed diversity to terrestrial and aquatic habitats in western forests. When most biological activity in soil is limited by low moisture availability in summer, the fallen tree-soil interface offers a relatively cool, moist habitat for animals and a substrate for microbial and root activity. Intensified utilization and management can deprive future forests of large, fallen trees. The impact of this loss on habitat diversity and on long-term forest productivity must be determined because managers need sound information on which to base resource management decisions.

Title: Problem Analysis: Old Growth and Ungulates of Northern Vancouver island

Year: 1982

Author(s): Ministry of Forests; Ministry of Environment

Type: Report (unpublished)

Description:
"Traditional timber harvest patterns on northern Vancouver Island have reduced the areas of old growth to the extent that deer and elk populations will be severely affected in a critical winter." Demand for both timber and wildlife "cannot be met to the degree that the proponents of each resource would prefer, and some reduction in wildlife recreation or timber harvesting is essential." These statements are included in the introduction to a one-year program, aimed at identifying various production levels of both timber and wildlife on northern Vancouver Island and released today from the ministries of Forests and Environment. The program proposal establishes terms of reference for the analysis and gives a comprehensive background to the difficult resource decisions which must soon be made between timber and wildlife on northern Vancouver Island. The procedure by which both resources will be analyzed and the various management options determine dis detailed, and a schedule for analysis and presentation of results is given.

Title: Recovery Rate in Three Exploited Sea Urchin Populations from 1972 to 1977

Year: 1978

Author(s): P. A. Breen; B. E. Adkins; D. C. Miller

Type: Report (published)

Description:
Three sites near Tofino were examined in order to determine the rate of recovery of red sea urchin populations after harvesting. At all sites, harvesting had taken place in 1972. At two sites, the number now present is much less than the number that were removed in 1972. On the third site, the number removed is not known, but there are still large areas of empty sea urchin habitat. From size distributions observed in 1974, 1976, and 1977, we conclude that the number of juveniles recruited annually is only 5 to 10% of the present population. The effect of harvesting on the algal communities is variable, depending on the area and the intensity of harvesting. At one site, harvesting appears to have had no effect, while at the other two sites Nereocystis and Pterygophora have increased in abundance. The effect on other invertebrates cannot be determined.
