The Canadian Wildlife Service-Ontario Region, Environment Canada, and the Landscape Analysis and Applications Section of the Canadian Forest Service, Natural Resources Canada, have created and compiled digital range maps of birds that breed in Canada. The purpose of this report is to describe the digital range map data, to outline the methods and sources used to create the data, and to describe summaries of proportional analyses that dissect the ranges by national, provincial, and ecological boundaries. The maps and summaries may be viewed at the Canadian Wildlife Service-Ontario Region Web site: (Library)
