Restoring Oak Habitats in Southern Oregon & Northern California: A Guide for Private Landowners describes how to apply conservation practices for Oregon white oak and California black oak habitats on private lands in southern Oregon and northern California. The document first discusses the importance and history of oak habitats and then provides detailed conservation guidelines for oak habitat restoration.

Prairie, Oaks, and People—A Conservation Business Plan to Revitalize the Prairie-Oak Habitats of the Pacific Northwest
The Landbird Monitoring Strategy for Oregon and Washington offers a comprehensive approach to identifying and meeting monitoring priorities in this region. This strategy aligns with national monitoring goals of Partners in Flight and the North American Bird Conservation Initiative (NABCI), as well as with the priorities and guiding documents of numerous federal and state agencies, non-governmental organizations, Joint Ventures, and Landscape Conservation Cooperatives. Guided by the four monitoring priorities of NABCI, this strategy identifies seven monitoring goals and associated short and long term measurable actions. This strategy will be useful in identifying links between organizational and regional priorities, assessing existing monitoring programs and developing new monitoring programs, and for scaling programs up to contribute to regional information needs.
The Coniferous Forest Bird Conservation Plan: A Strategy for Protecting and Managing Coniferous Forest Habitats and Associated Birds in California has been developed to help guide conservation policy and action on behalf of coniferous habitats and associated landbirds throughout California. The Conservation Plan is a synthesis of the current state of knowledge concerning birds in California’s coniferous forests and the problems they face. Recommendations presented here can be used by land managers to support viable populations of birds that depend on these forests for breeding.
Informing Ecosystem Management: Science and Process for Landbird Conservation in the Western United States presents ten examples illustrating both the process and science behind bird conservation in the west. The articles 1) describe integrating bird conservation and effectiveness monitoring into land management guidelines with an emphasis on partnerships; and 2) present case studies which highlight bird monitoring within the adaptive management framework. This U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Biological Technical Publication emphasizes both the science of monitoring and the process of its integration into land management because both are necessary in order for effectiveness monitoring to fully impact decision making. The document is intended to advance bird conservation by outlining how to better integrate science and land management.
Land Manager’s Guide to Bird Habitat and Populations in Oak Ecosystems of the Pacific Northwest provides an overview of oak ecosystems and discusses threats to these environments with focus on the habitat relationships between birds and oak habitats.
Habitat Conservation for Landbirds in the Coniferous Forests of Western Oregon and Washington has been prepared to stimulate and support a proactive approach to the conservation of landbirds in coniferous forests of western Oregon and Washington. This Partners in Flight bird conservation plan offers recommendations intended to guide planning efforts and the habitat management actions of land managers, direct expenditures of government and non-government organizations, and stimulate monitoring and research to support landbird conservation. The recommendations also are expected to be the biological foundation for developing and implementing integrated conservation strategies for multiple species at multiple geographic scales to ensure functional ecosystems as indicated by healthy populations of landbirds.
