Federal scientists recognized for contributions to knowledge of bird ecology and habitat
Date:2/6/2009

PORTLAND, Ore. February 6, 2009. Two federal scientists have won national awards for their research on the habitat and ecology of the marbled murrelet and the northern spotted owl. Martin Raphael and Eric Forsman, research wildlife biologists at the Forest Service's Pacific Northwest Research Station, were named recipients of the Wings Across the Americas Research and Partnership award. Raphael is based at the station's Olympia, Wash., lab and Forsman at the Corvallis, Ore., lab.

The Wings Across the Americas Research and Partnership award is given annually by the Washington, D.C., headquarters of the USDA Forest Service to recognize scientists whose work emphasizes a strong partnership between research and management to improve the status of a bird species or community of bird species. The 2009 award ceremony is scheduled to be held March 19, in Arlington, Virginia.

Raphael was cited for leading a research and management partnership across agencies to help make fundamental contributions to understanding the ecology and behavior of the marbled murrelet.

Forsman was honored for fostering a research/management partnership that increased our understanding of the spotted owl and its ecology.

The marbled murrelet was listed as a threatened species by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in 1992, primarily because of loss of habitat related to harvesting of old-growth forests. Raphael was appointed in 1997 to a team of scientists and managers to monitor the population and habitat of the murrelet.

The results of the team's efforts are summarized in the 2006 publication, Northwest Forest PlanThe First 10 Years (1994-2003): Status and Trends of Populations and Nesting Habitat for the Marbled Murrelet.

Other partners who will be recognized with Raphael at the awards ceremony are C.J. Ralph, Sherri Miller, and Jim Baldwin, Pacific Southwest Research Station/USDA Forest Service; Thomas Bloxton, Jr., PNW Research Stati
