Abstract: Coastal temperate rain forests are complex ecosystems with high economic value. Conservation management of these forests must be based on clear, defendable strategies with quantifiable goals if they are to withstand economic pressure for exploitation. We introduce the target species strategy as an efficient management tool which allows quantification of conservation goals and continuity in planning time frames. A target species is a species used in defining and monitoring conservation goals. The marbled murrelet (Brachyramphus marmoratus) is an excellent example of a target species. This seabird is highly dependent on coastal old-growth forests as breeding habitat. It is a threatened species in Canada and is considered for legal designation as threatened or endangered in British Columbia. Therefore, it has become a focal species in coastal temperate rain forest conservation...
