Concern over the social, economic, and ecological consequences of increasingly frequent "megafires" in California's Sierra Nevada have led some to propose large-scale forest restoration to increase ecosystem resilience. However, restoration efforts (e.g., forest thinning) may have collateral impacts on declining old-forest species. Is it possible to find balance between these two seemingly competing objectives? In this hour, I explore this question using the California spotted owl as a model old-forest species, and share new insights from ongoing research as part of my PhD dissertation.
