The Wildlife Habitat Response Model (WHRM) is a web-based tool meant to assist fuel treatment planners in evaluating the effects of fuel treatment alternatives on wildlife habitats. WHRM does not provide estimates of wildlife population changes or viability. WHRM is based on published literature about species/habitat relationships, and provides qualitative information about potential changes in wildlife habitats. These relationships are updated as new literature comes to our attention.
