Map and habitat classification of the study area in Kuopio, Eastern Finland. Habitats are classified by their suitability for the flying squirrel. Suitable habitat (H1) denotes mature spruce-dominated forests. Movement habitat (H2) consists of forests that are over 10 m in height. Urban habitat (H3) consist of residential areas, roads or other habitats dominated by human land use. Clear cut areas, fields and sapling stands are combined to unsuitable habitat (H4). Water bodies (H5) are not utilized by the species and may form barriers for movementsᅟ
