According to recent models, large-scale forest restoration projects may counteract these mega-disturbances while simultaneously benefitting populations of the spotted owl (Strix occidentalis) – two conservation goals previously thought to be incompatible. In the May issue of Frontiers, Jones et al. describe how maintaining large, old trees and high-quality areas within territories of old-forest species like spotted owls can not only help offset any potential negative impacts from landscape fuel treatments but also improve ecosystem resilience.
