Title: Ancient red cedar felled after suspicious fire set

Year: 2012

Author(s): Denise Titian

Type: Newspaper Article

Description:
"It had probably stood overlooking the lake for nearly 1000 years, but a suspicious fire set in its hollow trunk forced a faller to cut the giant red cedar down, sending it to its watery grave. For young Tla-o-qui-aht Tribal Park Guardian Hjalmer Wenstob it was a heart-breaking sight."

Title: Native Plants and First Nations: How can we create research that is equitable, sustainable, and beneficial to all?

Year: 2005

Author(s): Amanda Howe, Royal Roads University

Type: Proceedings

Description:
File Report: 200137-01 This workshop was funded by the Natural Health Products Directorate of Health Canada as part of the Natural Health Products Research Program (NHPRP). The aim of the NHPRP is to germinate interest in natural health product research by supporting research and related activities that address the following objectives: - the need to build research capacity - the commitment to conduct research of the highest quality - the importance of developing community infrastructure and partnerships; and/or - the need to enhance knowledge transfer and information retrieval The NHPRP has been developed to reflect the diverse nature of the Natural Health Product research community. During their nationwide consultations the NHPRP identified indigenous medicinal plants and Aboriginal contributions and approaches to alternative health care as research priorities.

Title: Classification of natural forest communities of coastal British Columbia, Canada

Year: 1996

Author(s): Karel Klinka; Hong Qian; Jim Pojar; Del V. Meidinger

Type: Journal Article

Description:
In comparison to countries with a tradition of vegetation studies, a comprehensive, hierarchical classification of plant communities in the province of British Columbia has not yet been developed. Such a classification is needed for systematic ecological studies and coordinated conservation of vegetation. As the culmination of fifty years of detailed surveys, tabular and multivariate analyses of 3779 releves of natural, old-growth, submontaine, montaine, and subalpine forest communities in coastal British Columbia were used to develop a hierarchy of vegetation units according to the Braun-Blanquet approach. At the highest level, we distinguished seven orders: Quercus garryana, Pseudotsuga menziesii-Mahonia nervosa, Tsuga heterophylla-Rhytidiadelphus loreus, Tsuga mertensiana, Thuja plicata-Tiarella trifoliata, Populus trichocarpa, and Pinus contorta-Sphagnum. Diagnostic table, ordination, and climatic and edaphic regimes were used to show floristic affinities among the orders and to interpret their relationships to regional environmental gradients. Plant communities of each order were briefly characterized by their floristic composition, physiognomy, succession, and environment. The synopsis for all delineated vegetation units (order, suborder, alliance, and association) of coastal British Columbia is included.

Title: Clayoquot Sound: An Introduction to Natural History Observations

Year: 1993

Author(s): Jennifer Bonnell; Ashley Dhanwant

Type: Student Paper

Description:
This study was undertaken to explore the methods and principles of natural history observation. Surveys were conducted of lake and river wildlife and conditions, and of inland plant diversity and distribution. Goldeneyes and mergansers were the most frequently observed bird species on the lake, while Western hemlock and red huckleberry dominated the inland vegetative ecosystem. The activity of several mammals was also observed and discussed in context to their habitat requirements. The sensitivity of the area in early Spring should be considered when scheduling human activity time frames in wilderness regions.

Title: The phytogeography of Oxalis oregana in British Columbia

Year: 1984

Author(s): R. T. Ogilvie; R. J. Hebda; H. L. Roemer

Type: Journal Article

Description:
The occurrence of Oxalis oregana Nutt. in British Columbia is documented for five localities on the west coast of Vancouver Island and one locality in the Queen Charlotte Islands. The Oxalis populations grow in alluvial Tsuga heterophylla - Picea sitchensis - Thuja plicata - Polystichum munitum forest communities. Rhizomatous reproduction was recorded in all populations and flowering in two of the Vancouver Island populations. Three of the populations may be less than 3000 years old because they would have been inundated by higher sea levels during the middle Holocene. Possible introduction of plants by native people from the Olympic Peninsula, WA is discussed.

Title: Alpine plants of phytogeographic interest on northwestern Vancouver Island

Year: 1984

Author(s): R. T. Ogilvie; A. Ceska

Type: Journal Article

Description:
Forty-four alpine taxa of phytogeographic interest are reported for seven mountain peaks on northwestern Vancouver Island, and their distribution is discussed. These taxa include two of the Queen Charlotte Islands endemics, two of the Olympic Peninsula endemics, one new record for North America, five new records for Vancouver Island, and a number of disjuncts. The relation of the alpine flora of the Vancouver Island ranges to other mountain systems and phytogeographic evidence for nonglaciated refugia on Vancouver Island are discussed.
