Abstract: British Columbia is the most biologically diverse province or territory in Canada. From the Pacific coast to the heights of the Rocky Mountains, the province encompasses a wide range of ecosystems. The natural landscape includes coastal rainforests, deluged with over three metres of rainfall annually, and desertlike steppes in the southern interior, where precipitation seldom exceeds 350 mm. British Columbia contains ecosystems, such as the enormous boreal forest, that occur in many other places in the world, as well as highly specialized ecosystems such as the winter-wet, summer-dry mild climates of the Gulf Islands. What is unique to British Columbia is the complicated mixture of these ecosystems across the province. Starting in the 1990s, land- and water-use decisions have focussed on maintaining British Columbia?s biological diversity.
