Abstract : This document is part of the Habitat Suitability Index Model Series, which provides habitat information useful for impact assessment and habitat management. Both of the models described in this report are based on the significant association of Wildlife species with vegetation structure. The models compare the structure in the study area with the vegetation structure that could potentially occur in that study area following land use changes or disturbance. These models provide a low resolution assessment of habitat structure relevant early in the land-use planning process.
