American Marten (Martes americana)

Martens are widespread and abundant in Alaska. Overharvest is not a management problem in most areas because of the amount of refugia, or inaccessible areas. Season lengths are set to reduce the opportunity for overexploitation. Extensive roading and habitat loss resulting from logging is a concern in some areas. Contrary to popular belief, wildfires can produce good habitat for martens by enhancing habitat for small rodents and providing log debris for cover and denning.
