Abstract: The Marbled Murrelet, a small, north Pacific seabird, needs coastal oldgrowth trees in which to nest. In British Columbia, and elsewhere in the murrelet’s breeding range, these ancient, mossy giants are disappearing. Much of the low and middle-elevation forest has already been cut and murrelet populations have probably already declined from historic levels. As logging spreads into more remote coastal valleys, populations are likely to decline in proportion to the amount of nesting habitat that is lost. Original forest is replaced with second-growth that mostly will be harvested every 80 to 100 years, never allowing the trees to reach the age, size and form that murrelets depend on for nesting. Fragmented old-growth stands and isolated patches are believed to provide poor murrelet habitat because nests in them are vulnerable to predators like ravens, and to wind and other disturbances.
