Canada Land Inventory (1:250,000) - Land Capability for Ungulates - u084c The mapping of land capability for ungulates follows a national system developed with the aid of the Canadian Wildlife Service and the game branches of the provinces. The ungulate sector uses seven classes, like the others. In addition to class and subclass, the system indicates the ungulate species to which the classification refers. Capability for ungulate production implies a sufficient quantity and quality of food, protective cover, and space to meet the needs for survival, growth, and reproduction. Capability mapping is accomplished through interpretation of air photographs and by field surveys. Capability ratings are also established on the basis of the optimum vegetational stage that can be maintained with good wildlife management practices. 1972-01-01 2017-05-04 Natural Resources Canada NRCan.geogratis-geogratis.RNCan@canada.ca Nature and EnvironmentScience and Technologyanimalsbiomassgame - wildlifeindigenous vegetationland managementland use - land coversoilsoil compactionsoil consistencesoil fertilitysoil heat budgetsoil horizons - profilesoil structuresoil texturesoilsungulatesvegetation Download Zip File in SHP format through HTTPSHP http://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/archive/vector/cli_itc_250k/ungulate/u084c.shp.zip
