Canadian Forest Ecosystem Classification One of Canada’s commitments arising from the Convention on Biological Diversity was the creation of a national classification of forest ecosystems, for use when monitoring criteria and indicators of biodiversity conservation, forest health and sustainable development.
Site index for jack pine, black spruce and trembling aspen was found to be poorly related to soil types described in the Northwestern Ontario Forest Ecosystem Classification (NWO FEC). Statistical analyses showed that average site indices for most soil types and groupings of soil types were not significantly different from each other.
Site index varies greatly within presently defined NWO FEC Cited by: Drever et al. () used classified FRI maps to perform a representation gap analysis of forest ecosystem types within protected areas in northeastern Ontario.

Forest ecosystems development of a forest ecosystem classification for northeastern Ontario. book those dominated by trees -- house an assortment of life, such as mammals, birds, insects, flowers, moss and microorganisms; they also include the non-living elements of soil, air and water.
Forest ecosystems can be classified according to. Forest Ecosystem Classification (FEC) systems have been used in the past mainly for forest management decision-making. FEC systems can also serve an important role for decision-making in other disciplines, such as fire management for both wildfire suppression and prescribed burning operations.
FEC systems can provide an important means of identifying potential fuels that may be Cited by: 4. The N.S. Provincial Habitat Classification is currently under development and will provide further information on wildlife values and features. Why Classify Forest Ecosystems At a landscape level, ecosystem classification provides a framework for landscape analysis and planning which can then be ecologically linked to operational (stand-level.
This book provides a forest and soil classification system for the commercial forest areas of Manitoba. The classification system consists of 33 vegetation types and 22 soil types, which are identified using keys. Each vegetation and soil type together with pertinent management interpretations is.
A forest region is a geographic zone, or belt, whose vegetation cover is characterized by a fairly uniform dominant species and stand type.
Forest region classification is based mainly on the nature of the vegetation or forest composition, unlike ecozones, which incorporate a much wider range of environmental variables.

3 Classification of ecosystem types – Experiences and perspectives from Statistics Canada Introduction This paper is written in response to the request for input on Research area 1: Spatial areas in the SEEA Experimental Ecosystem Accounts (EEA) Revision Revision Issues Note.
A forest is also an example of an ecosystem. In the following pages, we will describe the non-living and living elements that make up a forest ecosystem and examine the various interactions that occur between these elements.
Prerequisites: Before moving onto Session 2: The Forest Ecosystem, student should have completed Session 1. Lesson Outcomes. We used a systematic sampling grid of sites, covering 84 km 2 of boreal mixedwood forest in northwestern Alberta, Canada.
For every site, we determined tree basal area, characterized the ground beetle assemblage and obtained corresponding provincial forest inventory and ecosystem classification by: 9. Ecosystem Classifications Forest Classification Regional Field guides.
These are core reports of the BEC program, describing in detail site classification by BGC study and classification of mature forest communities has been the core focus of the BEC program.
The word forest derives from the Old French forest (also forès), denoting "forest, vast expanse covered by trees"; forest was first introduced into English as the word denoting wild land set aside for hunting without the necessity in definition of having trees on the land.
Possibly a borrowing, probably via Frankish or Old High German, of the Medieval Latin foresta, denoting "open wood. Ecosystem representation is one key component in assessing the biodiversity impacts of land-use changes that will irrevocably alter natural ecosystems.
We show how detailed vegetation plot data can be used to assess the potential impact of inundation by a proposed hydroelectricity dam in the Mokihinui gorge, New Zealand, on representation of natural forests. Specifically we ask: 1) How well Author: Kathrin Affeld, Kathrin Affeld, Susan K.

We searched the literature for studies on disturbance by fire, wind and bark beetles, and their impacts on ecosystem services as defined by the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (MEA, ), as well as their effects on biodiversity, focusing on species richness and habitat quality as well as on indices of diversity (e.g.
Shannon‐Index, Simpson‐Index, etc.).Cited by: This ecosystem classification, published and available online as the Field Guide to the Ecosites of Saskatchewan's Provincial Forests, facilitates better integration of forest management disciplines by providing a common ecosystem language that forms an explicit operational framework for resource managers.
Knowledge of the different kinds of tree communities that currently exist can provide a baseline for assessing the ecological attributes of forests and monitoring future changes. Forest inventory data can facilitate the development of this baseline knowledge across broad extents, but they first must be classified into forest community types.
Here, we compared three alternative classifications Cited by: 1. Stands of boreal forest are poor in tree species, and may be dominated by only one or a few kinds.
Most regions of boreal forest are subject to periodic disturbances, usually by wildfire, but sometimes by windstorms or insect epidemics.
Image The boreal coniferous forest (taiga) is extensive in northern regions of Canada, Alaska, and : Bill Freedman. Classifying Forest Ecosystems Forest Ecosystem Classification is a useful tool that lets you identify vegetation types, soil types and ecositess on your woodlot.
Forest Ecosystem Classification is based in the identification of ecosites by considering the soil types and vegetation structure of your woodlot. The classification of discrete forest disturbance events is usually based on the spatial extent, magnitude, and frequency of the disturbance.
Based on these characteristics, disturbances are placed into one of three broad categories, gap-scale, intermediate-severity, or catastrophic disturbance, along the disturbance classification gradient. We contend that our understanding of disturbance Cited by: 4. Increment core samples were collected from dominant or co-dominant black spruce trees in a network of m 2 plots distributed among forest stands representing the full range of species composition and stand development across a 1, ha forest management unit in northeastern Ontario, Canada.
Wood quality data were generated from optical. Forest ecology is one branch of a biotically-oriented classification of types of ecological study (as opposed to a classification based on organizational level or complexity, for example population or community ecology).Thus, forests are studied at a number of organizational levels, from the individual organism to the ecosystem.
However, as the term forest connotes an area inhabited by more. The AcAdiAn ForesT ecosysTem reseArch ProgrAm: An exAmPle oF nATurAl disTurbAnce-bAsed silviculTure in The norTheAsT. mike r. saunders, robert s. seymour, and robert g. Wagner. Abstract.

ecosystem classification are the foundation for the practice of silviculture. An understanding of tree species and forest development helps foresters predict forest ecosystem responses to both natural and human-caused disturbances.
Students will become familiar with the silvics of a number of commercial tree species, further their knowledge of.Locations spanned a gradient of forest structure and forest age ( years old). Researchers found stream ecosystem function was influenced by the age and structure of associated forests.
They found greater light availability from canopy gaps in older forests was linked to greater stream metabolism and concentrations of algal chlorophyll.ELCNS is a successor to ECOLOGICAL LAND CLASSIFICATION for NOVA SCOTIA Revised Editionwhich is a 72 page document without the photos, piecharts etc, found in ELCNS The new document incorporates information from the Forest Ecosystem Classification (/).
