Private and public holders of forest lands make daily decisions concerning management of their respective tracts with little understanding about the consequences to wildlife both on and adjacent to surrounding tracts of land. ECOSEARCH Version 1 (Short et al. 2001) is a computer program containing species-habitat models that provide a scientific basis for predicting the outcome of alternative management actions on wildlife within forested landscapes.
