Terrestrial Ecological Unit Inventory
What is TEUI?
 Objective of TEUI is to map and classify ecological
 units based on landscape variables
 TEUI products include databases, maps, unit
 descriptions, and ecological interpretations
 Products stratify the landscape and provide baseline
 resource information for conducting:
   Watershed assessments
   Project-level analysis and planning
   Project-level
   Forest Plan revisions
