Elusive Carolina Northern Flying Squirrels in Red Spruce Forests Face Survival Challenges

Year: 2014

The endangered Carolina northern flying squirrel is a secretive, nocturnal species and not much is known about its behavior and ecology. Forest Service researchers were part of a team that studied habitat preferences of this species. Study results showed the importance of management of red spruce in the face of hardwood intrusion. Red spruce is vital to assuring suitable habitat for the Carolina northern flying squirrel and protecting it from competition and the parasites associated with the more aggressive southern flying squirrel.
