A decision support tool (DST) is used to help inform, guide and support habitat planning decisions. It is not designed to make the decision for the user of the DST The Open Pine management DST is designed for landscape scale planning decisions. Habitat types used for this tool are based on 2001 National Land Cover Data (NLCD). The accuracy of the NLCD classification may vary across the West Gulf Coastal Plain and local managers may find erroneous classifications for their particular tract(s) of land. Currently, no other comprehensive data set with greater accuracy exists to replace NLCD for the entire West Gulf Coastal Plain region. Three umbrella species’ habitat requirements were used to develop the minimum patch...

Historic forest cover in the Mississippi Alluvial Valley has been reduced by >75%. Remaining forests are fragmented, hydrologically altered, and heavily influenced by human activities. Because well drained forests were easily cleared, most remaining large forest fragments are wet forest types. Because forest fragmentation and altered hydrology have negatively affected forest bird populations, we developed a spatially explicit decision support model for bird conservation. This model establishes priority areas for forest restoration that de-fragment the existing bottomland hardwood forests. Our primary objective was to increase the number of forest patches that harbored >2000 ha of interior area (core) that is at...
