Abstract: The purpose of this overall research project was to identify species for which riparian ecosystems were relatively important, and to provide recommendations for forest management that will best protect these species. There has been very little research in BC on the influence of timber harvesting on the diverse wildlife of riparian areas. The objectives of the research phase of this project were first, to describe the difference in riparian wildlife and vegetation of the Okanagan Highlands compared to uplands; second, to describe the effects of clearcutting on riparian and upland wildlife and vegetation; and third, to describe the effects of retention of forest corridors of various widths and levels of partial harvest on riparian wildlife and vegetation. The research examined each of these three objectives for breeding birds and small mammals, and a more limited set of objectives for the natural cycles of trees and coarse woody debris (CWD), for amphibians breeding in forests and clearcuts and for winter-activ
