Licensed under Access Only

Biogeoclimatic Ecosystem Classification (BEC) zone boundaries with percent protected, number of overlapping protected areas and other attributes added as a result of geoprocessing. Protected area and park representation by BEC zone provides a zonal ecosystem context for natural resource planning processes such as; management plans, land use zoning, environmental risk assessment, landscape analysis, habitat supply, and management of high priority species.

Additional Information

Purpose

Protected area representation analysis assists resource managers to assess the relative importance of maintaining the ecosystem at a specific site based on how much similar ecosystem in other locations is already protected from substantial alteration by humans.
