Ecological reserves are areas of land that have been protected from the consumptive resource use under the Ecological Reserves Act.  The Bowen Island Ecological Reserve was established in May 1973 to preserve dry subzone forest ecosystems in the Coastal Western Hemlock Zone at a location convenient for research.

The purpose of this study was to stratify the Bowen Island Ecological Reserve into site series units on the basis of physiography, soil and vegetation.  Six sites were selected to represent the different habitats found in the reserve.  Six sites and a total of ten plots were sampled.
