In the past few years, myself and colleagues have published over a dozen papers on Pacific marten survey techniques, ecology, movement, survival, energetics, reproduction, habitat use, and tradeoffs for long-term monitoring. Within this presentation, I provide a brief overview of marten ecology - combining new information with common paradigms. My goal is to provide the audience with a general background that will allow for deeper appreciation and understanding of a forest-dependent species of conservation concern. I highlight recent research on Humboldt or coastal martens, which are Endangered in California and federally Threatened. For managers and researchers alike, I conclude with opportunities to collect more comprehensive data using traditional methods (e.g., remote cameras) and considerations for combining data.
