Seasonal habitat associations of American martens ( Martes americana) in central Ontario. by Paul A. Gelok Download PDF EPUB FB2
Studies of the diet of marten (Martes americana) and the abundance and habitat associations of small mammals were conducted in south-central Alaska for 2 were found to eat primarily arvicolid (= microtine) rodents. Other important food items were sciurid rodents, fruits, and by: We assessed annual home-range area for 23 adult, resident American martens (Martes americana atrata) in a low-density population in eastern Newfoundland, Canada (–), and evaluated seasonal habitat requirements during a peak in abundance of snowshoe hares (Lepus americanus).Home-range estimates were km 2 and km 2 for males and females, Cited by: Abstract.

American marten (Martes americana), a species sensitive to intensive logging, is often associated with old-growth coniferous results, however, question the specificity of this association. We studied habitat selection of marten at the southern fringe of the boreal forest, in mixed forest types.
Abstract. Regional differences in stand-scale habitat selection by American martens (Martes americana) suggest that attributes other than stand age and dominant overstory-species composition are responsible for observed habitat gh several investigators have suggested that martens require complex forest structure, few studies have attempted to quantify the relationship.
American martens inhabit a variety of forest types, including northern hardwoods, eastern hemlock, red spruce-balsam fir, northern white cedar, and mixed coniferous-deciduous forests (Fig.
5),19,21,34 Although oak forests are uncommon in currently occupied areas of the Northeast, oaks provide high-quality habitat for martens in Michigan. American martens are widespread around northern part of North America. Habitat of martens stretches from the northernmost forests of Alaska and Canada to northern New Mexico, from California to Newfoundland.
However, some small populations of American martens are estimated in the American Midwest – Wisconsin and Minnesota. partners, stakeholders, and the Wisconsin American Marten Advisory Committee.
In addition, 12 American marten experts from across North America reviewed and commented on the plan. The plan also had a formal day public review period. This plan was unanimously approved by Wisconsin’s Natural Resources Board on Janu Although the American marten (Martes americana) generally is recognized as an obligate late-seral species, the factors dictating this association are poorly understood.
Martens were studied in Newfoundland, Yellowstone National Park, and in a captive setting. As expected, use of habitat types was not proportional to availability P. Research Article Habitat Selection by American Martens in Coastal California KEITH M.

ZIELINSKI, United States Department of Agriculture Forest Service, Pacific Southwest Research Station, Redwood Sciences Laboratory. The American pine marten (Martes americana), also known as the American marten, is a species of North American mammal, a member of the family species is sometimes referred to as simply the pine name "pine marten" is derived from the common name of the distinct Eurasian species Martes American marten differs from the fisher (Pekania pennanti) in.
Habitat associations of American martens have been well studied at the. Seasonal habitat selection by marten. Habitat for American martens (Martes americana) is associated with forest. American Marten The American marten (Martes americana) is currently designated as a sensitive species for the Pacific Southwest Region of the Forest Service and is of concern due to historic trapping, loss of habitat, and subsequent declines in both population and distribution (USDA ).
American martens use resting habitat between periods of activity to provide both thermal refugia and protection from predators. Maintenance or restoration of key elements of marten resting habitat, such as resting structures, requires that managers recognize their characteristics to.
ous marten habitat models and conclude with a discussion of the implications of our findings for managing marten habitat. Methods Study Area The study area is a km2 section of the Selkirk, Purcell, and Cabinet mountains, encompassing the Bonners Ferry and Priest River ranger districts of the Idaho Panhandle National Forest (Figure ).
Previous research on habitat associations of Newfoundland marten (Thompson and CurranSturtevant and Bissonette ) speculated that habitat requirements of American martens developed throughout mainland North America may not apply to the local conditions of Newfoundland and that habitat management for this endangered.
Out of five species of true marten, the American marten is the only species found in North America (Chapman & Feldhamer, ). They are also one of only two in the genus Martes located in North America, the other being the large-bodied fisher (Martes pennanti) (Buskirk & Zielinski, ).They are most predominately located in boreal forests stretching from Alaska to the coast of.
“American Marten BMP Zone” 2. Within the American marten range, all unforested land was removed, and then isolated stands of suitable forest habitats were also removed.
A stand was considered to be isolated if, within a surrounding area the size of an average marten home range (1, acres), less than 70% of the habitat was forested. Home range sizes vary considerably with habitat and prey densities.
Population densities of martens per square km are common in good habitat, but drop to martens per square km in poor habitat. Martes americana does not hibernate and is active all winter.
American martens. American martens are found from Southeast Alaska all the way up to the northern and western portions of the state where the last trees disappear and the true arctic tundra begins.
The marten's coat is characterized by soft, dense fur which varies in color from pale yellow to dark brown, often shading to black on the feet and legs. The Influence of Spatial Scale and Scale-Sensitive Properties on Habitat Selection by American Marten.

Key words: American marten, habitat use, home range, Martes americana, Newfoundland, prey abundance An understanding of the spatial requirements of individuals is important for predicting the capacity of landscapes to support viable populations.
Home-range area has been shown to be highly variable for American martens (Martes americana). populations or habitat or the habitat requirements of American marten; such information can be produced only by a more planned and systematic approach to sampling.
However, noticeable gaps exist in the distribution of American marten. The most serious is that no martens were detected in the range of the Humboldt marten in Del.

Progress 10/01/98 to 09/30/04 Outputs Negative responses of American marten (Martes americana) to clearcut logging have been well documented, but information on the responses of marten to uneven-aged silvicultural practices is lacking.
Thus, habitat selection, home-range characteristics, and indices to performance were studied for marten that occupied home ranges with > 10% partial harvests in.

Introduction. American marten (Martes americana) are associated with a variety of forest-stand types throughout their North American range, including late-successional, conifer-dominated forests in the western US and boreal regions of Canada (e.g.
Snyder and Bissonette,Thompson and Colgan, ).Recent studies in the eastern portion of the marten’s range suggest that mixed. American Marten Distribution, Abundance, and Seasonality. Uncommon to common, permanent resident of North Coast regions and Sierra Nevada, Klamath, and Cascades Mts.
Optimal habitats are various mixed evergreen forests with more than 40% crown closure, with large trees and snags.Martens and Fishers (Martes) in Human-Altered Environments: An International Perspective examines the conditions where humans and martens are compatible and incompatible, and promotes land use practices that allow Martes to be representatively distributed and viable.
