The purpose of the 2004-05 Forest Science Program-SIBEC project was to sample in priority BEC site series in the Northern Interior Forest Region to support continued development of the SIBEC (Site index estimates by BEC site series) model. 272 SIBEC samples were collected in 12 BEC subzones and variants. The new site index estimates resulting from these data are presented in the report, Site index estimates by site series: report by Biogeoclimatic unit (2005 approximation) and is available on the SIBEC website: http://www.for.gov.bc.ca/hre/sibec.
