Canadas plant hardiness zones revisited using modern climate interpolation techniques

McKenney, Daniel; Hutchinson, Michael; Kesteven, Jennifer; Venier, Lisa

Description

Canada's plant hardiness zones are well known to Canadian gardeners. The original hardiness indices and zones were developed in the early 1960's through regression models of several climatic parameters and plant survival data from numerous locations across the country. Since that time Canada's climate has changed and climate interpolation techniques have improved. We have remapped Canada's plant hardiness zones using data from the period of the original analysis (roughly 1930-1960) and for the...[Show more]
