Abstract

This field guide presents site classification and identification information for ecosystems of the south-central Columbia Mountains in southeast British Columbia.

This field guide replaces Land Management Handbook 20 (Braumandl and Curran 1992) and its supplement (Braumandl and Dykstra 2005) and Land Management Handbook 23 (Lloyd et al. 1990) for all geographic areas covered by the new field guide.

Abstract for Temporary Supplement to Land Management Handbook 70 - Four Biogeoclimatic Subzones/Variants in the Boundary-Okanagan

This web-based document provides site classification and ecosystem information for four subzones/variants in the Boundary, Okanagan, and southern Arrow Timber Supply Areas. The information will be published in 2017 as part of A Field Guide to Ecosystem Classification and Identification for Southeast British Columbia: the Boundary-Okanagan.

This temporary supplement includes site classification and ecosystem information for:

  • ESSFmh
  • ESSFdc1
  • ICHdw4
  • ICHmw5
Each of these biogeoclimatic units was previously mapped and described as part of a biogeoclimatic unit that has been updated and published in LMH 70. Releasing that guide without providing management direction for the biogeoclimatic units described here would cause confusion and could lead to incorrect management decisions. A crosswalk from new to old BEC is provided in an appendix of this document. Users can consult LMH 70 for information on the BEC system, how to use the tools in this temporary supplement, and for descriptions of non-forested ecosystems.
