Biophysical Plots


Data Identification
Abstract: Yukon Biophysical Plot locations are derived from the Yukon Biophysical Information System (YBIS) database, which is the Government of Yukon’s repository for storing biophysical data.Data contain a combination of site, soil and vegetation information which are collected by multiple agencies to support vegetation inventory, habitat assessment and baseline ecosystem products collected from 1975 - 2018. Data are collected and input into the database using standardized biophysical field forms as per the “Field Manual for Describing Yukon Ecosystems” data collection standards. Data contributors include Government of Yukon, Government of Canada, First Nations Governments, private contractors, academia and the public. Location accuracy of plot data may vary based on the project year and location collection method. YBIS is an active database, which is subject to periodic updates and revisions. Because of this, the onus is on the end-user to ensure that they are using the most current version of the data. Although every effort has been made to ensure the correctness of the data, there still may be errors. Please report errors in the data to the Custodian.Contact Information:Ecological and Landscape Classification (ELC) Coordinator, elc@gov.yk.caEcological and Landscape Classification Program, Fish and Wildlife Branch, Department of EnvironmentGovernment of Yukon, Box 2703, Whitehorse, Yukon Y1A 2C6ph.

Purpose: Yukon Biophysical Plot Locations are a spatial distribution of over 30 years of biophysical data collection in Yukon. Data contributors include Government of Yukon, Government of Canada, First Nations Governments, private contractors, academia and the public. Location accuracy of plot data may vary based on the project year and location collection method. The point file includes a summary of plot locations with detailed site, vegetation and soil information available on request from the ELC Coordinator.
