Habitat specialist species, such as forest raptors, are generally more likely to suffer from the impacts of silvicultural and forestry activities. One of the most characteristic and controversial aspects of these productive systems is the use of clearcutting as a harvesting method, which generates a mosaic of highly contrasting landscape between wooded areas and practically devoid of vegetation.
This study will analyze how clearcutting affects raptors of different degrees of forest dependency in landscapes dominated by exotic pine plantations in south-central Chile.
