Plain Language Summary

This project will help inform stakeholders about economic costs, benefits and trade-offs surrounding industrial forest activities and caribou habitat. The project aims to inform national level policy and strategic decision-making. The team will develop new national-scale datasets that include socio-economic considerations and climate change impacts. The computer-based modeling framework used in this project will simulate both human and natural forest landscape processes through time and explore the impact of potential management actions. This work should help minimize the trade-offs between economic development and habitat protection, as well as help focus attention on knowledge and research needs.
