This guide describes the lowland and montane ecosystems (below 1200 m in the south and 1050 m in the north) in British Columbia?s north-eastern corner. This area, north-east of the Rocky Mountains, encompasses the Alberta Plateau, Liard Plateau, and Liard Plain physiographic regions (Holland 1976). It is characterized by a northern continental climate, with very long, cold winters and short, warm summers. The landscape is a mosaic of poorly drained muskeg, mixed seral stands containing lodgepole pine and aspen, and some mature white and black spruce stands. Fires are common and the Northern Fire Ecology Project reports (Parminter 1983, 1984) describe the fires? impact on the boreal landscape. The guide presents aids to the identification of described units, and management interpretations for each.
