This guide briefly outlines the principles and methods of the ecosystem classification system, stressing the two primary areas of emphasis within the classification, the biogeoclimatic (zones, subzones, variants) and the ecosystematic (ecosystem associations and their phases and variations). It summarizes the environmental characteristics of the Northwestern transitional subzone of the Interior Cedar - Hemlock Zone (ICHg) and its five variants; ICHg1 - Upper Nass Basin variant; ICHg2 - Lower Nass Basin variant; ICHg3 -Hazelton variant; ICHg4 - Meziadin - Bell-Irving variant; and ICHg5 - Iskut -Stikine variant. The classification of the subzone at the ecosystematic level is then presented in detail.
