Ecological sites of the Montane subregion

Description

The Montane subregion of the Rocky Mountain Natural Region is one of the most diverse subregions in Alberta. The lands in the subregion are valued for a multitude of uses, including summer range for livestock, prime habitat for many species of wildlife, productive watersheds, wood fibre production and recreation. The classification system presented in this guide is intended to assist field staff in assessing the ecology and developing management prescriptions on lands within this region. The guide represents the analysis of approximately 2759 plots within three ecosections and 261 community types. The dominant plant species, canopy cover, environmental conditions and soils are outlined for each ecological site and plant community type.
