Abstract: The scale of natural resource management is currently changing from local or stand scale to the
landscape scale. The lack of management experience at this scale, and the limited feasibility of experiments
have increased the use of scenario modeling to analyze the effects of different management actions on focal
species. However, current modeling approaches are poorly suited for the analysis of viability in dynamic
landscapes. Demographic (e.g., metapopulation) models of species living in these landscapes do not
