- Not Specified
+ The original author did not specify a license.
This map aligns with Map 5 of the BC Old Growth Technical Advisory Panel's Old Growth Maps (OGM) clipped to northwestern BC.
If an ecosystem has been heavily harvested and very little old growth remains, these remnant areas are, by definition, rare. The Panel mapped remnant old growth in ecosystems with less than 10% old growth remaining, in total and within a landscape unit. Remnant old patches are frequently small and fragmented. Remnant Old Ecosystems are also included in the Priority Deferral Map (Map 1).
