So, what are you looking for, Don? A lengthy rebuttal rehashing this
old tired debate over whether or not modern wildlife biology, ecology
(the science of ecology, not "pop" ecology) and the findings of modern
academic foresters is "good science" or "junk science"?
I'm not going to waste my time pointing out over and over again that
"logger science" isn't pre-ordained to be "good science" simply because
it provides jobs.
The effects of past management on current wildlife distribution
and population levels is well-documented and irrefutable.
Those who care can take the time to look themselves.
