Banff National Park monitors invasive alien plants with the use of permanent, random stratified, transects established in each of the three management zones, in close proximity to vectors of spread (highways, trails, campgrounds, etc.). Percent cover of all detected non-native species is recorded along each transect using the line intercept method.

Non-native plants have invaded most low-elevation habitats and physically disturbed sites in Waterton Lakes National Park (WLNP). Parks Canada devotes substantial resources annually to efforts to control or eradicate the most invasive and persistent non-native plants. A Non-native Plant Condition Monitoring protocol was developed to detect changes in the abundance and distribution of non-native plant species across vulnerable regions of WLNP, and to gain an understanding of the severities and differences in impacts that non-native plants have on native plant communities. Relative abundance (I.e.

Non-native mammal species are monitored annually in areas critical for the protection important seabird islands. Remote cameras are deployed for 15-days to annually detect any changes to the mammal community at key sites. Non-native species pose the greatest ecological threat in Gwaii Haanas. Deer dramatically alter the vegetation and rats, racoons and squirrels impact native species both directly (predation) and indirectly (competition).

The main objective of the measure is to monitor how Invasive Alien Plant percent cover, a recognized stressor to native biodiversity, currently compares to pre-determined thresholds and how it is changing over time across the three different Invasive Plant Management Zones (Integrated Control, Enhanced Control, Ecological Preservation). Permanent, random stratified, transects will be established in each of the three management zones in close proximity to vectors of spread (highways, trails, campgrounds, etc). Percent cover of all detected non-native species will be recorded along each transect using the line intercept method. Data will be evaluated against thresholds defined for each IAP management zone and rules of decision to determine the overall condition of the parks.

This measure is based on snow-tracking data from 25 established snow-transects in the Bow Valley. Most transect occur within corridors around the Banff townsite, but several reference transects are located in the Broader Bow Valley. Trends for this metric focus on wary carnivores (cougar, lynx, wolf, and wolverine) on transects within 5 km of the Townsite. Data collected include location, species presence, number of animals, days since snow, & snow-depth.
