Volume 2: Terrestrial Ecosystem, Terrain, Terrain Stability, and Soil Erosion Potential Mapping, and Expanded Legend

From the Introduction:
"Volume 2, this report, provides detailed information on terrestrial ecosystem mapping (TEM) methods and gives descriptions of each of the ecosystems that occur within the sensitive ecosystems or other important ecosystems categories described in Volume 1.  Appendix B of Volume 1 provides tables that can be used to cross-reference between sensitive and other important ecosystems units and terrestrial ecosystem map units in this report.   This report describes the natural setting of the study area and details methods, results and recommendations for bioterrain, terrain stability and soil erosion potential mapping and ecosystem mapping.  It is intended for use by professionals that require more detailed ecological and terrain information."
