    Description

    The fundamental difference between the map presented here and other regional ecosystem classifications is that this map's ecological units are based on climatic processes rather than vegetation communities (map appears at the end of this appendix). Macroclimatic processes are the physical and thermodynamic interaction between climatic controls, or the relatively permanent atmospheric and geographical factors that govern the general nature of specific climates (Marsh 1988). This approach to regional ecological classification has proven useful to resource managers and interest groups in British Columbia (see British Columbia Commission on Resources and Environment 1994; British Columbia Ministry of Environment, Lands and Parks 1993; Hume 1993; Province of British Columbia 1993; Quesnel and Thiessen 1993; Senez 1994; Wareham 1991; Western Canada Wilderness Committee 1992).
