Notice ...

  • The Alaska Panhandle boundary line with British Columbia follows the transition from the Pacific Forest province to the Cordilleran Boreal province.
  • The southern half of the British Columbia - Alberta provincial border matches closely the boundary between the Cool Temperate and Boreal Divisions.


  • Ecological rules may prevail, even in the face of simple geometry, for establishing political boundary lines in remote areas.
