Ecozones - Montane Cordillera
Transcript of Ecozones - Montane Cordillera
The conifer forests provide residence for fur-bearers such as Marten, Fisher, Red Squirrel and Wolverine. There are a large amount of different birds, and Grizzly, and Black Bears are the most common large mammals.
Animals like Pygmy Nuthatch and Yellow-pine Chipmunk like to foarge conifer seeds, settle in the Ponderosa Pine parklands, aswel as the Mule Deer and White-tailed Deer who settle there because of the sufficient light for shrubs.
Small treeless bunchgrass areas, have a wide variety of different species, due to their wide range of habitats, for example they have grasslands, shrublands, wetlands and forests.
Development on the grasslands and lower slopes has unfortunately destroyed a lot of the habitats for many of the species. Mining , industy, vineyards and orchards, transportation, recreation and ranching There are national and provincial parks for people to visit in the Montane Cordillera The areas that are closer to sea level (such as valleys and slopes) are used for a lot of recreational activities. Activities include cycling, horse-back riding, hiking, hunting, fishing etc... The lakes and beaches in this ecozone are major tourist attractions--it can get really hot in summer The Dakelh
The Dakelh or Carrier are indigenous, to the Central Interior of British Columbia, Canada. The call themselves Dakelh because that means "people who go around by boat", and they speak Athabaskan.
The Dakelh are most active during the summer. That's the time when they could gather berries, and get the most fishing done. Fish is a massive part of their economy, but they also hunted deer, caribou, moose, elk, black bear, for their meat and pelts. Plants were not as important to the Dakelh, but they still used them for medicinal purposes. Cyrus and Diana Other attractions include:
"BC Wildlife Park, Kamloops Art Gallery, Western Canada Theatre, Kamloops Heritage Railways, Tobiano Golf Course, Kamloops Skate Park, Centre of the Universe, Kamloops Museum and Archives, Fossil Hunting, Dog Sledding, Helicopter Tours, Western Heritage Trails, and hundreds more!"

The Sekani tribe (Tsek'ehne) spoke their own language which was very similar to the Athabaskan language (which the Dakelh also spoke). The term Sekani means "people of the rocks" (because they live near the mountains in British Columbia)
Food, in this ecozone, was hard to come by. They mainly ate moose, caribou and black bear which was their most common hunt. Beaver and porcupine weren't hunted much, because they weren't as tasty to the Sekani. Beaver would be hunted mostly for its pelt. As for fish, the Sekani never caught any. They would only eat fish if it was an absolute necessity. Living near the mountains wouldn't have many fish.
The Sekani lived in caves and open huts due to the harsh weather conditions of the Montane Cordillera--they set up their sites close to ponds or rivers for water. The Sekani LINKS :D http://ca.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100426180826AAgzruW
