The Field Guide to the Ecosites of Saskatchewan's Provincial Forests provides detailed information about the province’s diverse forest ecosystems. The ecosites are described in a consistent and common language to help professionals from various disciplines work together effectively to wisely manage Saskatchewan’s forests.
The guide provides summaries and illustrations for each of the 81 provincial forest ecosites. The fact sheets describe living features, such as vegetation and forest productivity and non-living features, such as soil and moisture. As well, the guide describes the relationship of one site to another, and the site’s likely response to disturbances like harvesting and wildfire.
