Monitoring and managing biodiversity requires information about habitat and, in most cases, specific information on the composition and structure of the current vegetation. Forestland classification schemes are a source of this information, but we conclude that no one classification scheme provides all the information managers need to maintain biodiversity. Rather, each provides some relevant information; in combination, they may help resource managers organize information at the appropriate spatial scales for monitoring and maintaining biodiversity.
