Abstract: The goal of this problem analysis is to evaluate research priorities concerning the ways in which intensive forest management will affect thermal cover for deer and elk. Literature on the potential role of thermal cover is confused or limited by lack of an operational definition, variable patterns in use of cover dependent on meteorological conditions, apparent differences between preference and need, and complete absence of data on the thermoregulatory abilities of black-tailed deer and Roosevely elk. Objectives of this problem analysis are to review thermoregulatory needs of deer and elk and factors influencing them; to review the influences of forest treatments on factors influencing thermoregulatory needs and thermal cover; to suggest specific studies and priorities; and to suggest methodologies for research. Factors influencing operative temperature and thermoregulation of deer and elk include air temperature, wetting, wind speed, and components of radiation. The magnitude of thermal stress on Vancouver
