Mapping Garry oak ecosystems within the Mount Arrowsmith Biosphere Region
MetadataShow full item record
The Garry oak ecosystem mapping project aims to gain a better understanding of the location and extent of Garry oak ecosystems (GOEs) within the UNESCO designated Mount Arrowsmith Biosphere Region (MABR). This project will develop a list of potential Garry oak ecosystem sites within the biosphere region, ground-truth these sites and map their extent, as well as develop a final report that suggests ways to protect those that are at risk of becoming even more vulnerable. In alignment with the province’s current conservation goals, this project provides a unique opportunity to generate a better understanding of the vulnerability of both GOEs and their related ecosystems.
