biogeoclimatic ecosystem classification (bec) noun
The BEC system groups ecosystems in BC by combining four different types of classifications which includes vegetation, climatic (zonal), site, and seral. Vegetation, soils and topography are used to identify geographic areas with uniform climates, which are then termed biogeoclimatic units. Zones reflect differences in regional climate and are classified based on leading overstory tree species on zonal sites at climax.
