 Conclusions - Avian response to forest management and military training at Fort Benning, Georgia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Our objective was to determine if the abundance of selected avian species indicates disturbance in mixed pine-hardwood stands that differ in military and forestry practices.
Abundance of the selected species, however, may not be a suitable indicator of current land use because these species may not discriminate finely over a landscape and region that reflects a long history of natural disturbances and intensive land use.
An intensive study of avian abundance across Ft. Benning may better define distribution and population patterns, and would likely show that early successional species are positively affected by management practices.
