Technical Reports

This page provides links to download technical reports that assess Canada's ecosystem status and trends by theme and by ecozone+. Recurring findings from these reports are synthesized in Canadian Biodiversity: Ecosystem Status and Trends 2010. Some reports are available now; others are in the final stages of production. Links will be added as reports are published. Note that the reports are published only in electronic format.
