The Biotic Values Assessment Program was initiated by Millar Western as part of a plan to protect biotic values in their Whitecourt Forest Management Agreement area. The program produced the following sub-reports: Aquatic Resources, Forest Genetic Resources and Tree Improvement, Rare and Endangered Plants, Important Plant Communities, and Wildlife Species of Concern. The primary purpose of the program was to identify current populations and suggest monitoring methods.
The sub-reports serve to identify pertinent populations, identify data gaps and suggest monitoring programs to address the gaps in data. The data and recommendations of each sub-report may be used to develop a plan aimed to preserve key biotic values.
