What does this data set describe?

Title: Manitoba's Forest Management Units (FMU's): Version 4
Abstract:
Forest Management Units (FMU's) define a forested area with common forest conditions that are managed in a similar manner. Forest Sections are comprised of FMU's. Forest inventories within Forest Management Units are analysed to determine allowable harvest limits of softwood and hardwood tree species within each Forest Management Unit.Version 3: The southern portion of FMU 67 within the Highrock Forest Section has been adjusted to align with base featurescaptured in 2009.Additionally, a 11 ha portion of the Saskatchewan River Forest Section (FMU 59) has been added to the Highrock Forest Section.Version 4: The northern portion of FMU68 along the Rail Haul within the Highrock Forest Section has been adjust so that the boundary falls within water only.Additionally,version 4 splits the 'White Zone' forest section (FMU 76) by ecozones, creating FMU 76 (Taiga Shield), FMU 77 (Southern Arctic), FMU 78 (Hudson Plain) and FMU 79 (Boreal Shield).
