Table 17. Recommended seral stage distribution for NDT4 (% of forest area within the landscape unit)

[a] The minimum requirement for the old seral stage is included in the “Mature + old” category.
[b] L designates the lower biodiversity emphasis option; I designates the intermediate biodiversity emphasis option;
H designates the higher biodiversity emphasis option.

Note: The lower biodiversity emphasis option was established based on the assumption that it would not be applied to more than approximately half of the area of any biogeoclimatic subzone within a subregional plan or forest district.
