Present management policies to meet harvest demands are directed toward the manipulation of season lengths and gear restrictions with little or no emphasis on habitat management. Based on results from a trapper questionnaire, marten density was grouped into three categories and was found to correlate roughly to biogeoclimatic units in the province. Ecosystem, stand age, and type of silvicultural practice were found to influence marten activity, prey productivity and, hence, marten populations. It is recommended that baseline studies on denning, resting, and feeding requirements be initiated. Subsequent to these studies, in
