Abstract: Alpine vegetation in British Columbia has received little attention from scientists and land managers. This makes it extremely difficult or often impossible to document the plant communities of an alpine area and therefore characterize general features such as wildlife, soils or mesoclimate. This paper reviews studies pertaining to plant communities in the alpine zone (or that area above trees or krummholz) of British Columbia and immediately adjacent regions. Studies in adjacent regions are included since more work has been conducted there than within British Columbia, and since all the study areas are within several kilometers of B.C.ís border, most of the plant communities may be expected to occur within British Columbia. The occurrence of these plant communities in established or proposed ecological reserves is also documented. A second objective of this paper was to establish a framework for the future establishment of ecological reserves in British Columbia. This physiographic framework subdivides the p
