This book provides a forest and soil classification system for the commercial forest areas of Manitoba. The classification system consists of 33 vegetation types and 22 soil types, which are identified using keys. Each vegetation and soil type together with pertinent management interpretations is described on fact sheets. Management interpretations are made for silviculture (season of harvest, harvest type, species selection, site preparation method, vegetation competition type and level) and wildlife habitat (caribou forage potential, moose summer feeding potential, moose thermoregulation potential and moose winter feeding potential). To assist in plant identification, 60 common or indicator understory plants are illustrated.
