Ecological Information Systems Data

Description

The ECOSYS (Ecological Information System) database is a provincial database that stores over 26,000 vegetation and soil plots described in the province of Alberta. This information is used in the development of management tools (plant community guides, ecosite guides, natural subregion maps, range health tools etc.) to ensure Alberta’s public lands are being managed sustainably. ECOSYS also summarizes the raw plot information into Ecosite Guides for each subregion in the province.
