Predictive Ecosystem Mapping User's Guide and Workshop
Cortex, in association with JMJ Holdings Inc., developed a User's Guide and Workshop on predictive ecosystem mapping (PEM) and its applications in British Columbia.
The User's Guide presents an overview of PEM -- what it is, how it works, and how it is applied in resource management. The guide is intended to stand alone, as well as provide background reading material for the complementary workshop. It is not meant to be a technical reference for designing or carrying out a PEM inventory.
The intended audiences for the PEM User's Guide are people who are considering or planning to use an existing or planned PEM inventory as the basis for a particular application such as wildlife habitat interpretations or estimates of site productivity, including resource management planners, timber supply analysts, systems ecologists, and habitat specialists.
The User's Guide and associated workshop were produced for Tolko Industries Ltd., Williams Lake Woodlands, with funding from the Land-Base Investment Program (LBIP) of the provincial Forest Investment Account (FIA).
The pilot 1-day workshop was delivered on March 17, 2005 in Williams Lake.
