NWT Ecosystem Maps: Taiga Plains

NWT – Dept. of Environment and Natural Resources – The Government of the Northwest Territories has used the national ecosystem classification framework since 1996 as the basis for identifying candidate protected areas, forest management planning, wildlife habitat management and environmental impact assessment and mitigation. In 2004, in response to increasing development pressures in the Mackenzie River Corridor, the 1996 Taiga Plains Ecozone was evaluated. A series of workshops in 2004 – 2006 and an intensive survey of the entire Taiga Plains in 2005 led to significant changes to the 1996 map, and a revised map and report were produced in early 2007.
