The HyP3 Project (pronounced "hip cubed") was initiated in 1997 to provide an integrated research approach to the study of pattern, process, and productivity in the hypermaritime forests of north coastal British Columbia. The project has four main goals: 1) Document the ecology of the blanket bog-upland forest complex of north coastal British Columbia; 2) Assess the feasibility of managing poor- and low-productivity cedar-hemlock forests, dominating the outer coastal landscape, for timber and fibre production; 3) Define the extent of these sites and identify the potentially operable portion; and 4) Develop ecologically based management guidelines for these forests. This report presents a synthesis of the HyP3 Project's 7-year results. It provides an overview of the project to date and summarizes initial results for each of the project components-hydrology and biogeochemistry, ecosystem processes, classification and inventory, and operational trials. The report concludes with a chapter on management interpretations.
