Natural Regions and Subregions of Alberta

Beaver Hills

This dataset defines the ecological areas of Alberta known as the Natural Regions and Natural Subregions, as defined in 2004/2005. The intended scale of use of this product is 1:250 000. This version is 2005 Final. Note that the Athabasca Plain subregion has been moved into the Boreal Natural Region and that the Boreal Highlands has now been split into Lower and Upper. Linework changes from the previous Natural Subregion delineation are due both to better information and refined subregion definitions.

This dataset is intended to allow for the stratification of the province of Alberta based on ecological criteria. This dataset should be used in conjunction with the related final report.
