Forest Investment Account (FIA) - Land Base Investment Program
FIA Project 2668005

    Plant Diversity Benchmarks & Monitoring
Project lead: Canadian Forest Products Ltd.
Author: Timberline Natural Resource Group Ltd.
Subject: Forest Investment Account (FIA), British Columbia
Series: Forest Investment Account (FIA) - Land Base Investment Program
This is a continuation of project 2538026.

The objectives of this project include:
- Collect plant data and establish benchmark targets for managed stand plant diversity based on naturally regenerating stands
- Monitoring of plant diversity in managed stands

To establish the natural range of variability for plant diversity changes over successional time, vegetation species and percent cover data is required for stands regenerating after a natural, stand-initiating event. This data provides the ecological benchmarks for comparison with plant diversity of managed stands throughout the PGTSA.
