Vegetation maps at a scale of 1:50 000 have been prepared for the AOSERP study area by Intera Environmental Consultants Ltd. The purpose of this report is to provide background information for discussions relating to methodologies for enhancing the vegetation detail on Intera's maps. This report is based on the results of a brief field survey and ground checking of the maps in the Fort MacKay area (T94R10W4 and T94R11W4). A very preliminary vegetation classification which is more detailed than that described by Stringer (1976) is described as an example of how vegetation community information could be documented for inclusion on map units. The specific objectives of this report are to: 1) describe a preliminary vegetation community classification based on a brief survey of vegetation types in the Fort MacKay area, 2) describe the results of a ground check of Intera's vegetation maps in the Fort MacKay area, 3) provide recommendations based on the field survey and ground checking, for developing methodologies to enhance the detail on Intera's vegetation maps.
