In central Idaho, Steele and Geier-Hayes () found that Douglas-fIr regeneration was highest in gronp selection cuts and lowest in clearcuts in the Pseudotsuga men­ ziesiilPhysocarpus malvaceus habitat type. On the more moist Abies grandislVaccinium globulare habitat type, Steele and. It is climax throughout the grand fir series and is a major seral species in some western redcedar, western hemlock, subalpine fir, and Pacific silver fir habitat types. It exhibits moderate growth in the open, yet is shade-tolerant enough to establish and grow beneath an open forest canopy [ 9, 60, , , ]. habitat types of northern Idaho during to and was used to develop version 1 of the regeneration establishment model (Ferguson and others ).

It is based on reconnaissance sampling of about stands. A hierarchical taxonomic classification of forest sites was developed using the habitat type concept.

In central Idaho, Steele and others (28) described an Abies grandis series that includes nine habitat types and five phases in which grand fir is the climax tree. The Abies grandis zone is the most extensive midslope forest zone in the Cascade Range of Oregon and southern Washington and the Blue Mountains of eastern Oregon. Central Idaho is comprised of a complex geology of volcanics and the granitic Idaho Batholith ecoregion. Numerous streams have eroded deep canyons in this region and higher elevation forests consist of Grand fir, western larch and Douglas fir with multi-layered shrub communities. In Montana, larch is a significant component in 20 of the 64 forest habitat types (21). Of these 20 habitat types, larch is a major seral species in 12, and a minor seral species in 8. These habitat types are found within the following forest series: the relatively dry-warm Douglas-fir; the moist grand fir, western redcedar, and western hemlock. Get this from a library!
