Abstract : Vegetational and terrain data from 44 study sites in boreal forest and tundra of Canada west of Hudson Bay are employed to discern relationships between vegetation and climate, describe structural characteristics of vegetational communities, provide interpretation of vegetational and terrain features from aerial photographs (photo-interpretive keys), establish a generalized systematic categorization of the region based on vegetation, climate, terrain, topography, and surficial geology, and subdivide the entire area into regions.
