Abstract: The northern goshawk (Accipiter gentilis) is a rare to uncommon species in British Columbia and throughout the holarctic. The interior subspecies (A. gentilis atricapillus) has been declared “Identified Wildlife” and therefore requires special management attention, including the establishment of wildlife habitat areas (WHAs). We recently developed a habitat suitability index (HSI) to investigate the effects of current forest management practices on northern goshawk habitat in southeastern British Columbia. The index describes goshawk habitat requirements based on a spatially hierarchical framework of nested components (i.e., nest area, post-fledging family area, foraging area) within a home range. Without site-specific information, we used goshawk habitat indicator and criteria values in the HSI from the literature and adjusted them to reflect ecosystem-dependent natural disturbance regimes, forest types, and stand dynamics...
