WILDLIFE SPECIES: Mustela vison | Mink
DIRECT FIRE EFFECTS ON ANIMALS : There are no reports of direct mortality of mink due to fire. Because mink are highly mobile, semi-aquatic animals and often den underground, it seems unlikely that fire-caused mortality is ever substantial. HABITAT RELATED FIRE EFFECTS : There are no reports in the literature linking fire-caused habitat changes to mink. Fire along streambanks that reduces cover and downed logs would have a negative impact on mink activity. Reduction of fish and crayfish due to changes in stream conditions would adversely affect mink. Conversely, fire that resulted in increased snag numbers and stream channel downfalls, shrub density, and herbaceous vegetation cover would probably encourage mink activity. FIRE USE : NO-ENTRY REFERENCES : NO-ENTRY
