Title: Coastal Waterfowl and Habitat Inventory Program: Summary Report Appendices

Year: 1982

Author(s): R. A. Hunter, Terrestrial Studies Branch, BC Ministry of Environment; L. E. Jones, Ducks Unlimited

Type: Report (unpublished)

Description:
Introduction: This document is one result of a three-year program designed to evaluate coastal wetlands of British Columbia. It is intended to provide a reconnaissance level assessment of the biological attributes of tidal wetlands and indicate social factors, developmental pressures and opportunity for rehabilitation and enhancement associated with them. To date, 403 wetlands have been assessed. Of these the majority are estuarine areas although selected sloughs, mudlats and freshwater coastal lowlands were included. Ratings for the various wetlands were determined by Rodget Hunter, Ken Summers and the following BC Fish and Wildlife Branch staff: Davies, Harding, Burgess, Cox, Swatcaviatcz, West, Beets, Edie, van Drimmellen. The primary purpose of this evaluation program was to indicate the relative importance of individual coastal wetlands of the province with respect to preservation, protection and enhancement. Potential uses of this information area: 1. land-use planners within various provincial government ministries 2. natural resource managers 3. agencies and private organizations involved in acquisition and/or protection and preservation of wetlands.

Title: Biogeoclimatic Units of Central and Southern Vancouver Island

Year: 1979

Author(s): K. Klinka, Ministry of Forests, Vancouver Forest Region, Vancouver; F.C. Nuszdorfer, Ministry of Forests, Vancouver Forest Region, Vancouver; L. Skoda, Canadian Cartographics Limited, 508 Clarke Road, Coquitlam, B.C. V3J 3X2

Type: Book

Description:
Ecosystematic classification at the biogeoclimatic level has been refined further in that a new category, the biogeoclimatic variant, is described. Also, the ecological significance of biogeoclimatic units is substantiated by statistical treatment of climatic data. It is repeatedly shown by the analysis that the zonal ecosystems are reliable predictors of regional climate. A comparison of teh annual actual evapotranspiration of biogeoclimatic units, suggested as an index of plant activity, is carried out. The ost characteristic features of each biogeoclimatic zone, subzone, and variant are described with the aid of photographs. The distribution of these units on central and southern Vancouver Island is shown on a map produced at teh scale of 1:500 000.

Title: The Growth of Douglas-Fir, Western Red Cedar, Western Hemlock and Amabilis Fir on Moderately Well-Drained Clay Soils on the Tofino-Ucluelet Lowlands.

Year: 1978

Author(s): Steve Lord

Type: Report (unpublished)

Description:
The suitability of the flat-lying area adjacent to the ocean between Ucluelet and Tofino to grow various species of commercial trees has been a source of debate since reforestation programs were initiatied in the area in the late 1950s. Since most of the old growth stands on the "flats" have been logged, the question of which species to plan for a second crop has for the time being been resolved. However, as stand managemenet practises are intensified on the older plantations and naturally regenerated areas, additional information on the factors affecting site productivity and how they can be altered by management practises, is necessary in order to maximize the production of high quality fibre from these sites. The original objectives of the study were to analyze the growth rates and patterns of the various commercial tree species on all sites on the flats from the most productive to the least productive. As they study progressed it became apparent that there was a lack of suitable sampling areas on the low productivity, poorly drained sites. As a result, the selection of sample sites was limited to the most rapidly drained, most productive sites which contained a good selection of sample trees over 10 years old for all species. All of the growth data and stem quality data presented in teh write-up of this study is from one site, having similar potential productivity, soils and vegetation. Observations on the growth patterns and management implications of the lower productivity sites have been made in this report; however, it should be emphasized that they have not been substantiated by the collection of suitable data.

Title: Recovery Rate in Three Exploited Sea Urchin Populations from 1972 to 1977

Year: 1978

Author(s): P. A. Breen; B. E. Adkins; D. C. Miller

Type: Report (published)

Description:
Three sites near Tofino were examined in order to determine the rate of recovery of red sea urchin populations after harvesting. At all sites, harvesting had taken place in 1972. At two sites, the number now present is much less than the number that were removed in 1972. On the third site, the number removed is not known, but there are still large areas of empty sea urchin habitat. From size distributions observed in 1974, 1976, and 1977, we conclude that the number of juveniles recruited annually is only 5 to 10% of the present population. The effect of harvesting on the algal communities is variable, depending on the area and the intensity of harvesting. At one site, harvesting appears to have had no effect, while at the other two sites Nereocystis and Pterygophora have increased in abundance. The effect on other invertebrates cannot be determined.

Title: The Coastal Mink on Vancouver Island, British Columbia

Year: 1976

Author(s): David Hatler, University of Alaska

Type: Academic Thesis

Description:
The mink (Mustela vison evagor) which frequents the Pacific coastal shores of Vancouver island, British Columbia, forages primarily in the marine intertidal zone, feeding mostly upon small crustaceans and fish. Decapod crabs of the family Cancridae are taken throughout the year, but especially in sumer when they move into intertidal waters to mate and moult. Kelp crabs (Pugettia) and most fish species appear to the be most vulnerable in winter, when storms create instability in their near-shore habitat. Water depth, substrate particle size, and the degree of protection from heavy wave action are among the most important factors influencing the success of mink hunting for these organisms. Along these food-rich shores, most mink hunted at success rates which would have provided their daily requirements in less than two hours of hunting activity. Nevertheless, observations of individuals which hunted with less than average success, under various conditions,indicate that accessibility to food varies with place and time, especially relative to tide level. ...

Title: An Analysis of Use, by Waterfowl, of Tideflats in Southern Clayoquot Sound, British Columbia

Year: 1973

Author(s): David F. Hatler

Type: Report (unpublished)

Description:
Introduction: Pacific Rim National Park was established "to preserve the significant natural features of the Pacific coast and (to) provide opportunities for compatible recreational and interpretive activities." Among the significant natural features in this area are the large numbers of waterfowl which seasonally use the rich, shallow water inlets of southern Clayoquot Sound. The inclusion of the McLean Point-Grice Bay area within park boundaries was at least partly to provide sanctuary for these waterfowl. During the fall and early winter of 1972-73, as part of an avifaunal survey of Pacific Rim National Park, a study was carreid out in the above area. The objective was to: determine extent and manner of use by waterfowl of tide flats within the Park boundary and relate it to that of similar areas neighbouring the Park boundary.... The results of the work are presented here. It should be mentioned that though the general term "waterfowl" has been used in the foregoing paragraphs, it is really geese which have been the center of attention in this area. In past years when access was difficult, the dedicated waterfowlers who traveled to Tofino went for geese. Present day inlet reminiscences dwel on geese. Citizen concern for dwindling "waterfowl" populations has focussed on geese. And if I went out today and scared up a mixed flock of 1000 ducks and 50 geese, my consciousness would be riveted on the geese. Perhaps not all of us have the same reasons, but I think that in the final analysis, most of us are biased to geese. This report, which is largest about geese, is a response to (or perhaps a reflection of) that bias.

Title: Levels of polyploidy in four vegetation types of southwestern British Columbia

Year: 1972

Author(s): Jim Pojar

Type: Journal Article

Description:
Chromosome counts were made for the angiosperm species of five sample sites representative of four vegetation types in southwestern British Columbia. Levels of polyploidy were calculated for both the flora and vegetation of each of the sites. It is proposed that the differences in polyploid levels between the sites are related primarily to the increased likelihood of formation and selective advantage of allopolyploids in chronically unpredictable physical environments.

Title: The Investigation of Fort Defiance: A Report on the Preliminary Excavations

Year: 1972

Author(s): Donald H. Mitchell; J. Robert Knox

Type: Journal Article

Description:
Results of preliminary excavations at the 1791-92 winter quarters of Captain Robert Gray and the Columbia have been reports in part. The earlier publication presented evidence that confirmed the location of Gray's Fort Defiance about three miles north of Tofino on the shore of a small cove in Lemmens Inlet, Meares Island. As the prospects for continued examination of the site have become uncertain, it now seems desirable to report results of the 1968 excavations without further delay. This paper describes surface aspects of the site, features disclosed by excavation, and the artifact assemblage recovered.
