Abstract: Terrestrial Ecosystem Mapping (TEM) is the standard methodology used in British Columbia to map terrestrial ecosystems. TEM uses a 3-level classification hierarchy: ecoregion units and biogeoclimatic units at broader levels, and site units with vegetation development stages at the detailed level. Accompanying databases consist of a core set of data attributes, which can be used to develop interpretive products for a variety of purposes, including management interpretations for species and ecosystems at risk. This paper provides a summary of TEM projects completed or ongoing in British Columbia as of August 1998. TEM coverage was analyzed, and its usefulness to the management of species and ecosystems at risk was assessed, using both the ecoregion and biogeoclimatic classifications and the British Columbia Conservation Data Centre (CDC) rare element occurrence database. It was determined that the majority of TEM completed to date did not include areas of high rarity value...
