Tree, Shrub and Vegetation Sampling Sites

Fieldwork for this project took place through summers 2018 and 2019, visiting sites in the MacKay Lake and Daring-Yamba lakes area to sample shrubs for the growth ring component of this project. Trees were sampled opportunistically from the study areas. New in 2019, we also sampled vegetation at several plots to investigate how vegetation communities may be different between Greening and No Change sites. The locations of our study areas and shrub and vegetation sampling sites are shown on the map below.

Field investigation within the Bathurst caribou range sampled vegetation and shrubs at Greening and No Change sites in the Daring-Yamba lakes area (Insets A and B) in 2019 and the MacKay Lake area (Inset C) in 2018.
