CCLUP Biodiversity Conservation Strategy and Updates



The following are documents referenced in Land Management Handbook 59 which do not have confirmed URLs at time of publication (February 2006).

In January 2006 the URL for these documents, was <http://srmwww.gov.bc.ca/car/planning/cclup/biodiv/>. This URL is cited in the document Land Mangement Handbook 59 - Management Strategy for Mule Deer Winter Ranges in the Cariboo-Chilcotin Part 1b: Management Plan for Transition and Deep Snowpack Zones. Because this URL was going to be broken with no immediate indication of the new URL by the time of publication we chose to copy the pdfs to a known URL. All broken links from the now defunct URL address were not copied.

CCLUP Biodiversity Conservation Strategy

The Biodiversity Conservation Strategy was prepared as part of the Integration process. The strategy was completed in July 1996 and establishes landscape units and biodiversity emphasis across the region.

Implementation of the CCLUP since 1996 has raised a number of interpretive issues about biodiversity. Consequently the regional Biodiversity Conservation Committee has provided updates to the strategy to more fully explain key aspects.

Subsequent to release of the Biodiversity Conservation Strategy, a Cariboo-Chilcotin Grasslands Strategy was also prepared. The Grasslands strategy, released in January, 2001 addresses forest encroachment as it pertains to range and biodiversity.

Patch Size Assessment

Update Note #4: An Approach for Patch Size Assessments in the Cariboo Forest Region is a detailed document describing a recommended approach for all patch size assessments in the Cariboo Forest Region. This approach has been developed by the Biodiversity Conservation Strategy Committee and is consistent with the underlying principles of biodiversity conservation used for the Biodiversity Guidebook and Landscape Unit Planning Guide.

This document also describes the patch size maps and analysis reports and how to use them.
