Summary

A spruce beetle (Dendroctonus rufipennis) epidemic in southcentral Alaska has caused extensive mortality to spruce trees and a change in forest stand structure. Because a change in forest vegetation can influence composition and abundance of forest birds, we attempted to assess the type and magnitude of change in bird populations within 2 forest stands on the Kenai Peninsula that were undergoing differing levels of spruce beetle infestation. In addition, we compared bird populations occupying a salvage-logged forest site with those in the other forest stands. During our survey period (1994 to 1998), species composition and abundance of land birds differed across the sampled forest stands. Avian species diversity and richness was greatest [...]
