Gulf Islands of British Columbia : a landscape analysis / S. Eis and D. Craigdallie.: Fo143-6/216E-PDF

"The Outer Gulf Islands are located adjacent to the southeastern coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia and comprise six major islands: Gallano, Saturna, Mayne, North Pender, South Pender and Prevost, and a number of smaller islands. They have a total area of about 16,680 hectares. At present, the islands are lightly settled, but increasing pressure for retirement and summer cottages has resulted in several unsatisfactory subdivisions. The present study provides the environmental framework for planning and a base against which future development proposals may be assessed. Pertinent available information is summarized. Eight landscape units are described in terms of their environmental and vegetational characteristics, and impact of human activity on the environment, soils and vegetation is evaluated. Four maps are included in this study"--Abstract.
