About this book

Following an ecoclimatic approach, Geoffrey Scott reviews vegetation formations found in Canada in relation to physical geography.

Canada's Vegetation includes comprehensive sections on tundra, forest-tundra, boreal forest and mixed forest transition, prairie (steppe), Cordilleran environments in western North America, temperate deciduous forests, and wetlands. An overview of each ecosystem is provided, and equivalent vegetation types throughout the world are reviewed and compared with those in Canada.

The integration of data on climate, soil, and vegetation in a single volume makes this an invaluable reference tool. Canada's Vegetation is sure to become a standard textbook for those in the environmental sciences.

"A first-rate book. Scott strikes new ground in providing a consistent Canada-wide description of vegetation in relation to the various controlling factors of physical geography. Well organized, thoroughly researched, and carefully written, this book will quickly establish itself as essential reading for all those interested in the environmental sciences."
