Abstract

This poster was displayed at a Garry Oak symposium and used to advise Ecologists of a 2007 field guide (Technical Report 040) titled "Garry Oak (Quercus garryana) Plant Communities in British Columbia: A Guide to Identification".

Technical Report 040 covers the native plant communities with a component of Garry oak (Quercus garryana) in British Columbia. The purpose of the guide is to standardize the use of plant communities in conservation and recovery of the Garry oak habitat, and thus to move toward an ecosystem approach. Standardized communities can provide a basis for mapping and inventory. The guide is also intended to provide targets for Garry oak habitat restoration, and could help identify reference communities, which are then monitored to detect long-term ecological trends.
