Ecological sites of the Lower Foothills subregion

Description

The Lower Foothills subregion is a classic example of multiple use land. The land provides summer range for livestock, primary habitat for wildlife, productive watersheds, timber and recreational areas. The purpose of this guide was to develop a framework that would easily group the ecological sites and vegetative community types in the subregion. This guide represents the analysis of 1950 plots representing 115 community types. The dominant plant species, canopy cover and environmental conditions are outlined for each type.
