Abstract: This paper presents 11 testable hypotheses pertaining to terrestrial lichens, forest dynamics, and woodland caribou on the Chilcotin Plateau of south-central British Columbia. Based on preliminary studies conducted in the lodgepole pine forests of the Very Dry, Cold subzone of the Sub-boreal Pine?Spruce biogeoclimatic zone (SBPSxc), it is suggested that caribou and terrestrial forage lichens are linked in a positive-feedback continuum dependent in the long term on periodic surface fire. The possibility is raised that fire suppression may adversely affect woodland caribou in this subzone. Further work is required.
