Summary

This dataset depicts Marten (Martes americana) habitat in the Northern Appalachians predicted using the spatially explicit population model PATCH under the increased trapping intensity plus climate change scenario (FB4; Carrol 2007). This dataset represents one of several scenarios testing the interacting effects of trapping, timber harvest, habitat restoration, and climate change on marten populations. Static habitat suitability models for marten were fed through PATCH to predict source and sink habitat areas across the landscape. The static models for marten were created based on annual snowfall and percentage of older conifer and mixed forest. Demographic parameters were obtained from the literature and from calibration of the [...]
