The Wildlife-Habitat Relationships in Oregon and Washington (WHROW) Book. NHI data
collection and modeling efforts were subsequently expanded to include
Washington as well as Oregon. Working cooperatively with the Washington
Department of Fish and Wildlife and with funding provided by 34 project
partners, NHI created a wildlife-habitat database and maps for Oregon
and Washington. The data base contains not only peer reviewed species
and habitat attributes but information on the interactions of species
with their habitats. This joint venture culminated in the publication
of the Wildlife-Habitat Relationships in Oregon and Washington
(Johnson, D. H. and T. A. O'Neil. OSU Press. 2001) book and CD-ROM.
Wildlife-Habitat Relationships in Oregon and Washington CD-ROM This
book is the first to compile and synthesize in a single convenient,
comprehensive volume a vast amount of diverse information on 593
wildlife species and their relationships with the 32 terrestrial,
freshwater, and marine habitat types of Oregon and Washington. It
includes photographs of each habitat type, as well as hundreds of maps,
diagrams, and other illustrations. The accompanying CD-ROM contains
additional wildlife data and color maps, and seven matrixes that link
wildlife species with their respective habitat types. For more
information about this project, please visit the Wildlife-Habitat
Relationships in Oregon and Washington Support section on our web site.
the completion of Wildlife-Habitat Relationships in Oregon and
Washington, NHI has been working to expand that wildlife-habitat
database to include all of the Columbia River Basin in the US and
British Columbia and to develop an Internet application allowing free,
dynamic queries of this and other data. This project has been named the
Interactive Biodiversity Information System or IBIS. IBIS is an ongoing
project that will allow a range of simple to dynamic, spatial and
non-spatial, queries of NHI's wildlife-habitat database and GIS
(geographic information system) data. Though the early stages of IBIS
are limited to rather static query capabilities, eventually it will
include a dynamic mapping application and query system allowing users
to create habitat maps, species rangemaps, and a variety of statistics
for any user-defined area in the Pacific Northwest. To find out more
about the Interactive Biodiversity Information System, please visit the
IBIS web site.
In addition to data collection and delivery,
the Northwest Habitat Institute is committed to developing and applying
new environmental data analysis techniques. NHI is currently focusing
on the application of data mining and smart systems techniques to
leverage new information from existing IBIS data.

Errors with Table 1 in Chapter 2 (page 23) and Table 1 in Chapter 5 (page 165) of the Wildlife Habitat Relationships in Oregon and Washington book were found in March 2009. The wildlife habitat type acreages for Washington were incorrectly printed in the book. The corrected tables in Adobe .pdf format can be downloaded using the following links.
Correction! - Chapter 2, Table 1. The 32 wildlife habitats and their total acreage in Oregon and Washington.
Correction! - Chapter 5, Table 1. The total acreage of wildlife habitat types that occur and are under conservation-oriented protection strategies in Oregon and Washington
