Datasets

BEACONs has developed and assembled data sets to assist with conservation planning and research in the boreal. Shapefiles are available at databasin.org unless otherwise indicated.

Boreal Region of Canada

The study area for the BEACONs Project is the boreal and taiga regions of Canada as defined by the Boreal, Taiga, and Hudson Plain ecozones.

Regional Planning Units

Regional Planning Units stratify the boreal into ecologically-defined units based on hydrologic flow and terrestrial composition.

Catchments

A catchment is an area of land that drains water and other substances to a common low point or outlet such as a river or wetland. Catchments are used as building blocks to construct ecological benchmarks. This dataset is not yet publically available.

Lake-edge Density

Lake-edge density is a measure of the density of terrestrial/aquatic edge and represents the abundance of habitat along large waterbodies (lakes and wide rivers). This dataset is not yet publically available.

Fire Regionalization

The fire regionalization is a multivariate spatial characterization of boreal fire regimes based on the behaviour of fire reflected in the Canadian Large Fire Database. This dataset is not yet publically available.
