Project Goal: The goal of this project is to test the effectiveness of using group selection (about 30% area removal) and irregular group shelterwoods (about 50% area removal) to maintain caribou habitat, in particular lichens used as forage. The project is linked to and builds on previously initiated research trials in northern caribou habitat. Specifically, we are monitoring the response of terrestrial lichen, arboreal lichen, birds, ingress of trees, vegetation and planted stock in the two adaptive management blocks over a twenty-year period. This fiscal year is the seventh year of the project.
