Arboreal rodents are important elements of regional biodiversity.
Hence, the response of arboreal rodents to management of young stands is an important area of investigation.
Previous research indicates that arboreal rodents may be particularly sensitive to changes in forest structure, but their response to forest management has not been fully elucidated.

 Learning to Fly: How Birds Took to the Air - EvoWiki   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
Arboreal organisms face challenges in foraging for food and other resources which are not met by cursors, which can proceed in a rather linear fashion over terrain to find the resources needed.
Both the cursorial and arboreal theories for the origin of bird flight are historical narrative explanations and thus are not strictly deductive; only an inductive process in which favorable data is advanced in their defense can test them.
It has further been argued that the arboreal theory for the origin of avian flight is deficient as it is at odds with the inferred ecology of the earliest birds and their presumed theropod ancestors.

 Early-winter Habitat Use by Mountain Caribou in the southern Purcell Mountains, British Columbia
The species of arboreal lichen on standing or downed trees and downed branches was not recorded in data forms, but field notes indicated that it was almost always Bryoria spp., with Alectoria sarmentosa constituting <1% or occasionally <5% of the available lichen per transect.
In contrast, when snow was deep, arboreal lichen was the only available food and occurred in varying amounts on virtually every tree, so caribou may have shifted strategies to inspect more trees in an effort to locate better lichen patches.
The exclusive use of arboreal lichen during the latter part of this study was consistent with late-winter activity, but began 8 weeks before the approximate date normally associated with the beginning of late winter across mountain caribou range (Simpson et al.

Arboreal ceilings, manufactured by Ceilings Plus, Los Angeles, California, are lightweight aluminum panels finished with wood or other natural veneers.
Arboreal panels qualify for additional LEED credits because their aluminum core contains up to 98 percent recycled materials, including 75 percent post-consumer content from recycled aluminum beverage cans.
In addition to providing the bamboo veneer and meeting rigorous environmental conditions, the Arboreal panels were custom perforated to provide the desired appearance and create a high noise reduction coefficient.

 Anurans - Arborial
Arboreal species tend to have relatively large heads and eyes, with long legs and slim waists.
Many arboreal species contain an extra set of extensor muscles in their fingers as an adaptation to arboreality, although some non-arboreal species also contain this extra set of muscles, but they probably had an arboreal ancestor and retained the hand muscles as a conserved feature.
Arboreal species that lack this muscle would most likely, therefore, have had non-arboreal ancestors.

 The World Of Atheris - Arboreal Vipers of the World
Note: While an attempt has been made to include most members of the family Viperidae that have largely semi-arboreal or arboreal habits, this list is necessarily incomplete due to the exclusion of some snakes subjectively declared by this author as "terrestrial".
The truth is that even some heavy-bodied mostly terrestrial species ascend bushes and trees, and it would be impossible to create a catalog of "arboreal" species that would satisfy all readers.
In the case of the widespread genus Trimeresurus, which contains both terrestrial and arboreal species and the distinction may in some cases be arguable, only the more familiar and decidedly arboreal snakes have been included.
