Pine-lichen woodlands provide critical winter range for northern caribou and a source of fibre to the forest industry. In 2001, an adaptive management project was established to collect information on the influence of forest development on terrestrial lichen community development. The project focused on: i) mineral soil and forest floor disturbance, ii) organic debris and coarse woody debris accumulation, and iii) tree density and patterns of stocking on irradiance. The project is now in the monitoring phase of the adaptive management process where previous activities included pre-development sampling at 3 sites, treatment implementation at 2 sites, and collection of post-development information at 1 site. The activities reported here summarize monitoring activities associated with the post-development data collected at a site referred to as the "98-mile" site.
