Abstract: The antelope-brush ecosystem of the South Okanagan, with its many rare or potentially rare, endangered, and vulnerable species, is one of the most endangered ecosystems in Canada. Over half of this shrub-steppe habitat has been totally destroyed, with more disappearing every year. Only 9% of the remaining antelope-brush ecosystem is in a relatively undisturbed state. Alien species, especially weed invasion, livestock grazing, and other disturbance, now impact the remnants of this desert community. Little has been set aside in protected areas, and those areas now protected are too small, too few, and too scattered for effective biodiversity conservation. If current initiatives are successful, an ecosystem renewal plan for the South Okanagan will soon be established with biodiversity conservation core areas, corridors, and buffer zones, in a sound and community-acceptable landscape network. This conservation plan, focused especially in the antelope-brush community will require future emphasis on...
