|GROUP SELECTION IN LOW ELEVATION MOUNTAIN CARIBOU HABITAT IN THE QUESNEL HIGHLAND, ISAIAH CREEK PROJECT|
|Project lead: Stevenson, Susan (Silvifauna Reserach)|
|Subject: Forest Investment Account (FIA), British Columbia|
|Series: Forest Investment Account (FIA) - Land Base Investment Program - Innovative|
|The core objectives of the Isaiah Creek project were to document pre-harvest and immediate postharvest stand structure, wildlife tree occurrence, and coarse woody debris; to measure the response of arboreal lichens to partial cutting; to monitor regeneration development in the openings; to monitor vegetation response to partial cutting; and to monitor treefall related to harvesting. This work was funded by West Fraser Mills Ltd. (Forest Investment Account funds) and carried out in consultation with Southern Interior Forest Region researchers by a research team based at the University of Northern British Columbia.|
A second set of objectives was to measure harvesting productivity and damage to the residual stand. This work was done by FPInnovations – Feric Division.
Most of the detailed objectives are unchanged from those described in the original working plan (Stevenson and Newsome 2006). However, some objectives were subsequently modified to take advantage of new opportunities that developed.
