This study was carried out in February 2007, in Pope & Talbotís Operating Area located in Supply Block C, and a small portion of Supply Block B, in Fort St. James Forest District. The objectives were to identify: 1) regions of high biodiversity potential; and 2) corridors that would interconnect these regions, and ensure proper linkage across landscapes to promote species movements. The identification of potential high-biodiversity areas took into consideration Pope & Talbotís proposed old-growth areas, based on the distribution of old-growth edge and old-growth interior, and the distribution of species associated with late-successional stands, namely American marten (Martes americana), fisher (Martes pennanti) and wolverine (Gulo gulo), and species living in sympatry.
