Description:Marten are largely nocturnal, medium-sized carnivores in the weasel family (Mustelidae). The major identification challenge is distinguishing marten from fishers, as they are found in similar habitat in trees and on the ground, and both have thick fur and bushy tails.

Marten vs. fisher Marten are much smaller than fishers and have orange on their throat and chest. On the other hand, track-plates detected small carnivores (marten [M. americana] and weasels [Mustela spp.]) more often than cameras and had higher PODs for small and midsized species than did.

SLAUSON, United States Department of Agriculture Forest Service, Pacific Southwest Research Station, Redwood Cited by: The American marten was once found in a broad belt across forested northern North America.
