The biotic mapping system was developed for the Coastal Task Force of the British Columbia Resource Committee. The idea for developing a biotic mapping system originated with the scientific authority, Mr. Don Howes, who provided administrative, technical and financial support. John Harper of Coastal and Oceans Resources Inc. helped considerably in the integration of the biotic and physical shore-zone mapping systems. We would also like to thank Peter Wainwright of LGL Limited and Brian Emmett of Archipelago Marine Research for their contribution to the initial conceptual design and development of the system. Mary Morris kindly allowed us to include the species codes she compiled. Contributions were also made by workshop participants including: Barron Carswell, British Columbia Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Fisheries, Michael Dunn, Canadian Wildlife Service, Christine Hodgson, British Columbia Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Fisheries, Brad Mason, Canada Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Kenneth Warhei, Washington State Department of Wildlife, and Maureen Wayne, British Columbia Ministry of Environment, Lands and Parks.
