Wildlife Habitat - Resources and References

Wildlife of all types excite and animate the interests of landowners and many others.  Foresters spend effort working to align traditional resource management with the owner objectives related to their values for wildlife.  Understanding of the needs of wildlife will provide new and stronger strategies to ensure that owners achieve their goals.  Gary Goff of Cornell University Cooperative Extension discussed how owners and managers can create and manipulate the four key elements of wildlife habitat: food, water, cover and space.  The content is intended for those beginning the process of learning and implementing these strategies.
