This report is intended to support development and application of an ecosystem representation analysis (ERA) in the Quesnel Forest District. It provides descriptions of and rationales for ecosystem representation and the biological richness criterion and associated indicators that the ecosystem representation approach is a component of. It presents a set of ecosystem groupings, outlines the steps and data required for completing an ERA and discusses the use of ecosystem representation as a coarse-filter element of a strategy to sustain biological richness in managed forests.
