Synopsis

The vast temperate rainforests of coastal British Columbia are world

renowned, but much less is known about the other rainforest located 500

kilometres inland along the western slopes of the interior mountains.

The unique integration of continentality and humidity in this region

favours the development of lush rainforest communities that incorporate

both coastal and boreal elements. The domain of grizzly bears, ancient

forests, and plant species with a maritime affinity, the rainforest is

also home to the mountain caribou, mountain hemlock, and alpine tundra,

species more closely linked to a cold continental climate.





In British Columbia's Inland Rainforest, scientists

bring together, for the first time, a broad spectrum of information

about the ecology, management, and conservation of this distinctive

ecosystem. Accessibly written and generously illustrated, the chapters

examine the physical, social, economic, and ecological dimensions of

the rainforest. They also look at how the delicate balance of

this ecosystem has been threatened by human use and climate change. In

the past, governments encouraged the forest industry to clearcut the

"decadent" old stands and replace them with rapidly growing

young trees of other species. More recently, out of concern for the

ecological consequences of such practices, researchers have begun to

examine alternative management strategies. This book offers a vision

that combines various strategies in order to balance the conservation

of the inland rainforest as a fully functioning ecosystem with human

use of its diverse resources.
