Woodland restoration offers an important opportunity for ensuring the persistence of native Wisconsin biodiversity. However, understanding how open woodland management treatments, such as prescribed fire and tree thinning, effect forest species can be challenging. In this talk, Maia describes preliminary results from two years of fieldwork in the Baraboo Hills aimed at understanding the effects of oak woodland management on forest arthropods, and insectivorous birds. This work is part of her PhD, and is also the foundation of our long-term monitoring efforts.
