Vulnerability to spruce budworm mortality, predicted based on host species relative abundance and forest age (Hennigar et al. 2011, Journal of Forestry 109:332-342). Classes presented from least vulnerable (Non-host Forest) to most vulnerable (Fir-Dominated Host Forest, Mature).
Areas with greater than 50% probability of occurrence for Canada lynx (Simons-Legaard et al. 2013, Journal of Wildlife Management 77:567-578), predicted based on forest composition and age.
This application can be used to visualize, explore, and interpret map data relevant to spruce budworm mitigation and land use planning. Current maps represent forest conditions ca. 2018. Updated and expanded maps are under construction.
