This report synthesizes the best scientific information on caribou/forestry management available at this time, for the use of resource managers at the landscape and stand levels of planning. The report focuses mainly on winter ranges because they are the seasonal habitats where conflicts with forestry activities are most severe. Mature forests in the Interior Cedar-Hemlock (ICH) and Engelmann Spruce-Subalpine Fir (ESSF) zones are used. Mountain caribou generally use low elevations more in early winter than in late winter; their use of the ICH zone varies geographically. During late winter, open-canopied stands in the upper ESSF are used regularly.
