Abstract: This full report presents a classification of mid-seral black spruce ecosystems in the Boreal White and Black Spruce (BWBS) and Sub-boreal Spruce (SBS) zones of British Columbia. The classification is based on a total of 122 plots sampled during the summers of 1997 and 1998. We used multivariate and tabular methods to synthesize and classify ecosystems according to the Braun-Blanquet approach and the methods of biogeoclimatic ecosystem classification. The black spruce ecosystems were classified into 8 vegetation units (associations or subassociations) and the same number of site associations. We describe vegetation and environmental features of these vegetation and site units. Vegetation and environmental tables for individual plots are given in Appendices. In addition, we also present the relationships between site index of black spruce and direct and indirect measures of site quality.
