[In his own voice: recordings of a series of lectures by Dr. Vladimir J. Krajina on the Biogeoclimatic Zones of British Columbia, Lecture 3B] Krajina, Vladimir J.


Lecture 3B: This is Dr. Krajina’s final lecture to the Botany 406 class. [Note: his opening comments about the possibilities for quantitative studies on biogeoclimatic zones, and reference to the PhD theses of his former students, are directed towards the newly hired plant ecologist in Botany, G. Bradfield, who was present at this lecture]. He provides some background on the use of climate data for distinguishing between biogeoclimatic zones, especially those of the semi-arid region around Kamloops, Lytton and Oliver. He talks briefly about Ecological Reserves, and reminisces briefly on some of his own struggles in promoting his ecological message in BC. Examples in this lecture are taken from the dry zones of the southern Interior and the Coastal Douglas Fir (CDF) zone. The lecture ends with information about the upcoming weekend field trip to Tofino.
