LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) is an emerging remote-sensing tool that can provide fine-scale data describing vertical complexity of vegetation relevant to species that are responsive to forest structure. Features as depicted may have been generalized or displaced for cartographic purposes. Fragmented old-growth stands and isolated patches are believed to provide poor murrelet habitat because nests in them are vulnerable to predators like ravens, and to wind and other dis-turbances.
