British Columbia recently adapted a Conservation Framework intended to make the allocation of resources to conservation activities more effective. This report summarizes the ability of coarse filter analyses to assess the likelihood that current forest planning and practice will sustain vertebrates that rank high in the provincial Conservation Framework and are strongly associated with hardwoods. Species on Environment Canada?s draft list for Bird Conservation Region 6 also are included. The evaluation exploits biodiversity sustainability analysis which combines features of the Species Accounting System and coarse filter analyses of the consequences of forest planning and practice. Non-vertebrates are noted, but data for them are much more limiting.
