The sandy soils of the Ucluelet terrain system (Ucluelet catena) range from a moderately well drained Orthic Ferro-Humic Podzol (Ucluelet series) through an imperfectly drained Gleyed Orthic Ferro-Humic Podzol (Sandhill series) to a very poorly drained Placic Humic Podzol (Wreck Bay series).

This chapter dissects the lowland soils into its geographic setting for land management purposes—(1) soils of the coastal areas, (2) soils of the river and lake terraces, and freshwater swamps, (3) soils of the narrow and broad alluvial valleys and flood plains, and (4) soils of the infilled localized valleys, collo-alluvial plains, and fan Cited by: 3.

The Sphagnum bogs of the Tofino-Ucluelet area of the western coast of Vancouver Island were studied from vegetational, edaphic, and historical aspects. An integrated approach to these three aspects was attempted in order to give in a relatively limited time as complete a picture as possible of the bog ecosystem.

The bog vegetation was studied on sample plots using analytical and synthetic. For storm watching, book a hotel room overlooking waves crashing against the rocky shore; Black Rock Resort and The Wickanninish Inn are perfect choices. But to experience the elements more fully, a handful of public places have been designated for exactly that.

Soils derived from Pleistocene deposits with an aeolian mantle in the Fraser Lowland of British Columbia and adjacent Washington State are analyzed and compared for classification as Podzols and Spodosols. Data from Canadian and American sources are examined for six groups of soils that correlate across the international boundary.

Book Description: This work originated in a Symposium forming part of the programme for Section IV (Geological Sciences including Mineralogy) of the Royal Society of Canada, which met at Queen's University, Kingston, in Of wide scope, it demonstrates the progress now being made in Canada in the study of its vast area of soils.

The province of British Columbia, Canada, has established an Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) to protect the most suitable soil landscapes for agriculture. Increases in population and urbanization have resulted in development challenges on ALR lands.

The Metro Vancouver area is the most productive agricultural area in British Columbia as well as the most rapidly growing urban region.

Introduction Structural degradation in the lowland soils in British Columbia, Canada, has long been recognized (Klohn Leonoff Ltd. et al., ). In the study area, a key event in the history of land degradation occurred in when the provincial government expropri- * Corresponding author.

Soil degradation in the lowland soils of the Lower Fraser Valley area is an off-season (September-April) problem. The legacy of the degradation process is encountered every year in the form of ponding which delays farming operations such as cultivation and seeding.

It is common for the lowland soils in west Delta to be left in a bare, loose, and therefore unstable state in the fall after. Two anomalous, gray, silty clay beds are present in ODP cores collected from Saanich Inlet, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.

The beds, which date to ab 14 C yr BP (11, calendar years BP), contain Tertiary pollen derived from sedimentary rocks found only in the Fraser Lowland, on the mainland of British Columbia and Washington just east of the Strait of. This ecoregion lies within the most densely populated area of British Columbia and Washington, including the metropolitan areas of Vancouver and Seattle.

Consequently, only 5% of the original lowland forest habitat within the region remains, and over 90% of these remaining areas have been heavily altered from their natural state. Mesic to moist shoreline thickets, beaches, clearings and roadsides in the lowland zone; rare in SW BC, known only from the Tofino-Ucluelet area; S to CA.

British Columbia - British Columbia - Climate: Because of the Kuroshio, or Japan Current, which warms the coast, and the adjoining mountain ranges, British Columbia experiences a variety of climates.

Some climatologists have claimed that, in its temperature, humidity, and variability, the southwestern corner of the province, tempered by the current, has one of the most favourable.

There is concern regarding the loss of ecosystem goods and services as a result of land use changes such as the expansion and intensification of agricultural activities.

Assessments of these interactions require innovative analyses that combine qualitative and quantitative economic analyses. The Millennium Ecosystem Assessment framework was applied to a peri-urban region in British Columbia.

Podzolic soils occupy % of the Canadian landmass, and occur in two widely separated areas, eastern Canada (northern Ontario, Quebec, Maritimes) and British Columbia, usually under coniferous forest and on non-calcareous parent materials.

Humo-Ferric Podzolic soils are most common in the subalpine zone. Characteristic wildlife includes black-tailed deer, American elk (wapiti), black bear, wolf, mink, otter, raccoon, seabirds, shorebirds, waterfowl, and grouse. This very humid ecoregion includes some of the most productive forest lands in British Columbia.

As one of Washington’s most diverse ecosystems, shrubsteppe provides habitat for species found nowhere else in the state, such as the greater sage-grouse, sagebrush sparrow, and burrowing an estimated 80% of historic shrubsteppe lost or degraded to development and agriculture since the arrival.
