"The general objective of the job is to determine the effectiveness of seed source plantings of fruit-bearing shrubs as a forest wildlife management technique. It is well established that these shrubs are scarce in Adirondack forests, and it is possible that the scarcity limits some species of wildlife. If small nuclei of shrub stocks could be established under favorable conditions, these nuclei could supply fruit for wildlife. It is also possible that they could be induced to spread, through proper culture of forest areas surrounding these nuclei. The first objective, then, is to identify successful shrubs for wildlife plantings. The second objective is to gain insight into their utility as seed source plantings."
