Résumé en langage clair et simple

Vegetation Zones of Canada: a Biogeoclimatic Perspective maps Canadian geography in relation to regional climate, as indicated by vegetation patterns. Compared to previous similar national-scale products, Vegetation Zones of Canada benefits from the work of provincial and territorial ecological classification programs over the last 30+ years, incorporating this regional knowledge into a harmonized national map. This new map, reflecting vegetation and soils adapted to climates prior to approximately 1960, can serve as a broad-scale (approximately 1:5 million to 1:10 million) reference for monitoring and modeling effects of climatic changes on Canadian ecosystems.
