Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The inland rainforest of North Central British Columbia, a temperate rainforest, is one of the most diverse, ancient ecosystems on the planet. The inland rainforest is part of the interior cedar hemlock zone in the Rocky Mountain Trench, and one of the richest parts of this wet belt lies 110 kilometres east of the city of Prince George and nearly a thousand kilometres east of the coastal rainforests. The oldest and most diverse parts of the forest are typically found on northeasterly aspect wet toe slopes, with Western Redcedar trees over 1,000 years old and undisturbed forest stands much older than that. Some of these toe slope benches were cleared in the 1960s to develop the Yellowhead Highway, with the added result that most of the remainder became easily accessible to industrial logging and recreation, and more recently to research and interpretation. As a consequence there are only a handful of the best sites left undisturbed in 2008. As well, the inexorable northward movement of climatic zones means that the Inland Rainforest east of Prince George may be the last refuge on the planet within half a century.
