APPENDIX 1. Schematic of the crosswalk to California Wildlife Habitats using species biomass outputs produced by LANDIS-II. The biomass composition of each pixel in the LANDIS-II output is evaluated to approximated predefined habitat types including montane chaparral (MCP), aspen (ASP), white fir (WFR), red fir (RFR), lodgepole pine (LPN), Jeffrey pine (JPN), Sierra mixed conifer (SMC), and subalpine conifer (SCN). After habitat type is determined, conifer-dominated pixels are classified as early, mid or late seral conditions according to average tree size estimates. Finally, canopy cover class is estimated in mid to late seral forests using estimates of tree density.
