Generally speaking, British Columbia is a cool, moist, mountainous, forested region. However, the province also has areas with Mediterranean-type, semi-arid, subarctic, and alpine climates. It has extensive plateaus, plains, and basins as well as several roughly parallel series of mountains.

Forests dominate the vegetation but there are also extensive areas of grasslands, wetlands, scrub, and tundra. (Source: SFU Data Warehouse 2007)
