Biogeoclimatic Ecosystem Classification (BEC) Zones (Variant) are distinguished as either High or Moderate sensitivity: High (CWH, ICH, ESSF, SBS); Moderate (MS, MH, IDF); Low (all other BEC Zones). Mid-seral is assigned as per BEC forest age criteria from the Biodiversity Guidebook, and further classified for potential forage suitability. 'Low' forage suitability (dark, dense stands with little understory) are considered as 'mid-seral dense conifer'. Mid-seral condition is tracked when projecting future forest structure and limits to long-term grizzly bear forage supply can be noted.
