The Ecological Landscape Analysis reports describe the ecosystems of Nova Scotia’s incredibly diverse ecodistricts, and the character of their geology, forests, wildlife and human land uses. The original reports were written by the Department of Natural Resources to support landscape level planning. These are now presented as a series of reports for a variety of audiences, including the general public, woodland owners and forest ecosystem planners. The reports provide benchmarks of the conditions as of 2007. In the future updates of current conditions will be released to allow comparison with the benchmarks to assess the trends in ecosystem health.
