35 Conclusions Area of mature and old-growth forest and habitat for associated Species is expected to increase strongly over the next 100 years Despite 100 years amounts of older forest and structural conditions still probably below historical range of variation Low amounts of habitat for species requiring open structurally Diverse forests trends are flat Species diversity associated with hardwoods is projected to strongly decline

36 Conclusions Alternative policies may alter condition of biological diversity but further analysis is needed New landscape patterns developing that have particular ecological characteristics
