    List of figures

    • Figure 1. Critical habitat for Tall Bugbane in Canada is represented by the yellow shaded polygons (units) where the criteria and methodology set out in Section 1.1 are met. The detailed polygons show the area within which critical habitat is found at North Vedder Mountain (Population #1; 577.2 ha). The 1 km x 1 km UTM grid overlay (red outline) shown on this figure is part of a standardized national grid system used to indicate the general geographic area within which critical habitat is found in Canada. Areas outside of the shaded yellow polygons do not contain critical habitat.
    • Figure 2. Critical habitat for Tall Bugbane in Canada is represented by the yellow shaded polygons (units) where the criteria and methodology set out in Section 1.1 are met. The detailed polygons show the area within which critical habitat is found at South Vedder Mountain (Population #2; 160.3 ha). The 1 km x 1 km UTM grid overlay (red outline) shown on this figure is part of a standardized national grid system used to indicate the general geographic area within which critical habitat is found in Canada. Areas outside of the shaded yellow polygons do not contain critical habitat.
    • Figure 3. Critical habitat for Tall Bugbane in Canada is represented by the yellow shaded polygons (units) where the criteria and methodology set out in Section 1.1 are met. The detailed polygons show the area within which critical habitat is found at Upper Tamihi (Population #3; 19.6 ha) and Elk Mountain (Population #5; 291.6 ha). The 1 km x 1 km UTM grid overlay (red outline) shown on this figure is part of a standardized national grid system used to indicate the general geographic area within which critical habitat is found in Canada. Areas outside of the shaded yellow polygons do not contain critical habitat.
    • Figure 4. Critical habitat for Tall Bugbane in Canada is represented by the yellow shaded polygons (units) where the criteria and methodology set out in Section 1.1 are met. The detailed polygons show the area within which critical habitat is found at Chipmunk Creek (Population #4; 19.6 ha). The 1 km x 1 km UTM grid overlay (red outline) shown on this figure is part of a standardized national grid system used to indicate the general geographic area within which critical habitat is found in Canada. Areas outside of the shaded yellow polygons do not contain critical habitat.
    • Figure 5. Critical habitat for Tall Bugbane in Canada is represented by the yellow shaded polygons (units) where the criteria and methodology set out in Section 1.1 are met. The detailed polygons show the area within which critical habitat is found at Mount Thom (Population #6; 39.7 ha) and Opsee (Population #7; 196.7 ha). The 1 km x 1 km UTM grid overlay (red outline) shown on this figure is part of a standardized national grid system used to indicate the general geographic area within which critical habitat is found in Canada. Areas outside of the shaded yellow polygons do not contain critical habitat.
