Abstract. We modeled the viability of a Bell's Sage Sparrow (Amphispiza belli ssp.
belli) metapopulation under different fire regimes in the foothills and mountains of San
Diego County, California, USA. The approach integrates a landscape model, which predicts
the vegetation composition and age under three fire regimes, a habitat model, which in-
terprets the resulting landscape in terms of its suitability for the Sage Sparrow, and a
metapopulation model, which predicts the viability of the species based on a dynamic
