Two caribou (Rangifer tarandus) ranges (Level Mountain and Horseranch Range) in northern British Columbia are described in terms of vegetation, general terrain, soil characteristics, geology and climate. Vegetation, general terrain, and soil characteristics important to caribou (habitat) were mapped and described at a scale of 1:100,000 for each range. Caribou sightings from census flights are related to various habitat map units. A separate caribou habitat use map, which shows areas most heavily used during the rut, calving, post-calving, summer and winter periods, is presented. The problems relating caribou sightings to specific habitat types are detailed. Both the Habitat Map and the Seasonal Habitat Use by Caribou Map for each area accompany this report.
