This chapter describes methods for assessing a series of habitat variables, including deadwood volume, vertical stand structure, characteristics of forest fragments and edge effects, and the characteristics of habitat trees. It also provides an account of modelling procedures that are increasingly being used to produce habitat maps for individual species. Finally, some suggestions are presented on how to undertake an assessment of forest biodiversity.

Keywords:   forest habitat, coarse woody debris, vertical stand structure, forest fragmentation, biodiversity, understorey vegetation, trees, edge characteristics
