A research project on biogeoclimatic classification, currently in progress in Alberta, is expected to establish an ecological zonation of the province in terms of biogeoclimatic zones and a forest classification in terms of plant associations. It will also provide basic information on the structure, ecological characteristics, behavior, and productivity of forest ecosystems. Such a system will be of great value in developing improved forest management and practices, identifying problem areas, and guiding future research efforts.
