Title: Clayoquot Sound: An Introduction to Natural History Observations

Date: 1993

Author(s): Jennifer Bonnell; Ashley Dhanwant

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.
