ecological data

The  BCMCA held five workshops and invited experts in their field to participate. At these workshops, experts identified ecological data to incorporate in this analysis and were asked important questions to help define the analysis parameters.

The experts were responsible for contributing to the scientific rigour of the BCMCA. A workshop report was drafted and reviewed by the participants for each of the following areas of expertise (all expert reviews complete):

Expert recommendations on data and features to represent the physical marine environment, or abiotic realm, were also gathered. The BCMCA invited a team of reviewers to comment on proposed methods and data sources and to recommend alternative methods and data where they saw fit.

The Project Team assembled and collated the ecological data into features. Please visit the document library for a complete listing of the assembled ecological features along with a description of each feature and HTML metadata.
