If wildlife diversity is to be maintained in managed forests, the habitat needs of all wildlife species must be met. This report provides some of the necessary information by describing the habitat requirements of 133 vertebrate species of north-central British Columbia in relation to two special habitat elements: Wildlife Trees and Coarse Woody Debris. To make it easier for habitat managers to apply this information, requirements were condensed into a series of Habitat Summary Tables. The tables, which are based mainly on published research reviewed up to 1995, describe in detail the varieties of Wildlife Trees and Coarse Woody Debris that are required by wildlife.
