Climate data and models A key milestone in our climate change related research was the development of ClimateBC/WNA, scale-free climate models for BC and western North America. Predictions from this model have been used to project the future distributions of current bioclimatic envelopes for both ecosystems and species, to evaluate forest tree population persistence in [ ].

With their deep ties to the land and reliance on fishing, hunting, and gathering, indigenous tribes are especially vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. Now, native communities across North.With its remarkable physical diversity and beauty, excellent climate and abundant resources, British Columbia was particularly well placed to reap the benefits and opportunities of these circumstances, even as there were signs that the good life had been oversold.
If life changed dramatically during this period, so did the way it was seen.
