This project was requested by the Fish and Wildlife Branch, British Columbia Ministry of Environment, Fort St. John to map ungulate habitat to aid in assessment of ungulate capability and suitability, and provide a framework for enhancement. The information can also be used to describe habitat for other animals. The study area includes N.T.S. map sheets 94A/5 and 6 and those portions of N.T.S. 94A/3 and 4 not covered by the study of Thompson et al. (1980). The present study area is mapped for ungulate habitat at a 1:50,000 scale. Soils, terrain, vegetation and wildlife habitat were assessed by field work in July and August 1986.
