This adaptive management plan (AMP) outlines a process for integrating the management of winter range for northern caribou (Rangifer tarandus) with forestry practices. The integration of these two resources in strategic level plans (i.e. the Mackenzie LRMP and the Vanderhoof LRMP) has resulted in the establishment of caribou strategies and technical/public advisory groups that have recognised the social, economic and ecological importance of both resources and the interactions between them. Regarding interactions, limited information and uncertainties related to decision making have resulted in a conflict situation that demands research be conducted to resolve issues.
