This project utilized field sampling and reconnaissance to assess the present and potential future condition of mature (age class 5, 6, and 7) stands in Landscape Unit K-18 as habitat for mountain caribou. Greater present suitability than expected was observed in most of these stands, and future suitability for caribou is projected to vary between stand types. This is illustrated by a set of time-series maps driven by combined field findings and GIS data that show present conditions and hypothetical future conditions at 30, 60 and 120 yr. intervals. The implications emerging from this exercise are discussed, and suggested next steps are recommended.
