Ecoregions of Saskatchewan. An ecoregion is a relatively large area of land that contains a geographically distinct pattern of recurring ecosystems. Each ecoregion is associated with characteristic combinations of soil, landforms, and the associated plant and animal communities. There are 11 ecoregions in Saskatchewan. (Others include: Forest Ecosystems of West-central Alberta, mid-boreal ecoregions of Saskatchewan, Northern Alberta, and West-central Alberta.) As with all books in the series, an ecological classification system was developed for southwestern Alberta through the analysis of vegetation, soil, site and forest productivity information.

Alberta’s Natural Subregions represent the current distribution of our ecosystems across the province. As climate change progresses, Alberta’s ecosystems will shift in response. You can explore the projections for Alberta’s ecosystems under future conditions in this map gallery; three future scenarios represent different assumptions about.

Plants have always been a source of myth and legend, of simple mention in stories passed down for generations. Their primary purpose has been medicine first, food second. The chemical and biological properties plants hold in their grasp have always been keys to help both humans and animals satisfy many needs: From quenching nutritional cravings created by and mysteriously and innately sensed.
