Abstract: Roosevelt elk are the second-priority species on Vancouver Island i n terms of management effort. The increasing demand for consumptive use is evident since the initiation of the limited entry hunting system i n 1977, with applications far exceeding available permits. The objective of increasing elk populations to help satisfy demand has been identified i n provincial and regional species management plans. The potential for increasing the elk population on Vancouver Island is dependent primarily on the integration of habitat requirements with intensive forest management, as the majority of Vancouver Island is committed to fiber production. Management-oriented research on elk ecology and intensive forestry interactions is thus required to provide the biological information necessary for effective resource integration. Silvicultural practices i n second growth or regenerating forests on Vancouver Island are proceeding without consideration of wildlife requirements. A problem analysis initiated by the British Columbia Ministry of Forests (MOF) (Ellis 1980) examined the major wildlife-forestry interactions and presented a number o f wildlife research needs which might help solve wildlife-forestry conflicts. General elk research needs were examined i n the analysis. Since completion of the MOF problem analysis, intensive silviculture has proceeded while elk research and management needs have not been addressed.
