Abstract: The British Columbia Ministry of Forests is developing a practical classification system for British Columbia’s wetland and riparian ecosystems. The project has identified a diversity of wetland and riparian ecosystem types, in terms of environmental profiles, regional distribution, and habitat values. Urbanization, agricultural development, hydrological modification, livestock grazing, intensive forestry, and introduction of invasive species pose the gravest threats to wetland and riparian ecosystems by outright destruction, habitat simplification, or isolation from important adjacent habitats. However, some wetland types are more sensitive to these disturbances or provide greater habitat values than others. The classification recognizes this variability in ecosystem function and can be used to identify and quantify ecosystem types of greatest concern. Given the importance of wetland and riparian ecosystems to overall ecosystem integrity...
