    Presence of Humans in Forests - Kilometres of Roads

    Increases in population, urbanisation and the development of the road network have replaced large forested lands and have created pressures on the remaining forests (or woodlands). Three principal Canadian forested regions have been most affected by these events: the Windsor-Québec corridor, the...

    Commercial Land Use: Arterial Strips

    This map shows how commercial activity is distributed within urban areas and the impact of commercial services on the urban landscape, by mapping what proportion of stores (hence jobs) in an urban area that are found in arterial strips. Arterial strips are those through streets that are lined...

    Threats to Ecosystems - Population Variation by Ecoprovince, 1971 to 1996

    The higher the concentration of people in an ecoprovince, the higher the chance of loss of habitat and species. To better evaluate and minimize population impacts on the environment, it is necessary to study the distribution and variation of population within ecological areas. The map shows the...
