(abundance and diversity) and functional responses (conservation status and
ecological services provided by) bird and plant communities in managed pine
states from stand initiation to canopy closure, including a hardwood
release treatment at 6 years post-stand initiation. This project will
involve field work and analysis of historic datasets. Candidates should
