    Description

    The purpose of this technical guide is to provide specific direction and guidance for conducting Terrestrial Ecological Unit Inventory (TEUI) at the landscape and land-unit scales. TEUI seeks to classify ecological types and map terrestrial ecological units (TEUs) to a consistent standard throughout National Forest System lands. The objectives, policies, and responsibilities for TEUI are contained in Forest Service Manual (FSM) 1940. U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Forest Service policy dictates that ecological units be used in natural resource inventory, monitoring, and evaluation; in land management planning; and in making predictions and interpretations for management of National Forest System lands.
