Developing a Topographic Model to Predict the Northern Hardwood Forest Type within Carolina Northern Flying Squirrel (Glaucomys sabrinus coloratus) Recovery Areas of the Southern Appalachians
Northern hardwood study areas in Western North Carolina, eastern Tennessee, and southwestern Virginia surveyed in June 2012–January 2013. Mountain ranges or massifs were (1) Grayson Highlands, (2) Elk Knob State Park, (3) Roan Mountain, (4) Unaka Mountain, (5) Big Bald, (6) Black and Craggy Mountains, (7) Great Balsams, (8), Cherokee Reservation, (9) Wayah Bald, (10) the Standing Indian, and (11) Unicoi Mountains. All of these ranges are believed to have populations of Carolina Northern flying squirrel with the exception of the Wayah Bald and the Standing Indian.
