Abstract

Five air photo stereograms representing landscape profiles of a wide range of ecological site conditions (ecosites) in the boreal mixedwood ecoregions of Saskatchewan are presented. Procedures are described to identify and map mixedwood ecosites using five sources of existing information including: ecoregion maps, an ecological classification field guide, forest inventory maps, soil survey maps and reports, and aerial photographs, with dichotomous keys. Ecosites described in detail in the companion Saskatchewan ecosite classification field guide are characterized in this book by attributes described in these five resource information sources. Also included are a glossary of technical terms, and appendixes listing ecosites, ecosite phases, plant community types, and soil types of the Saskatchewan mixed-wood ecoregions, information on boreal tree silvics, soil mapping associations, and the correspondence of ecosites and forest inventory map units.
