Below you can find information on a variety of areas in Southeast Alaska.

We describe the broader context of Southeast Alaska according to biogeographic provinces. On map below, the 3 provinces of CBJ are numbers 5, 6 and 14.

The 22 biogeographic provinces are numbered here from north to south along the mainland, then from N to S through the archipelago. Color ‘families’ group 22 provincesinto 5 clusters based upon distinctive mammal assemblages. Blue—mainland. Browns—Chichagof-Baranof. Yellow—Xutsnoowú. Greens—central & inner islands. Pinks—Tàan (POW) & southern outer islands. They’re defined in Carstensen, Schoen & Albert (2009). Provinces selected for treatment here are those with Juneau’s near-neighbor cities and villages. While the roaded portions of the CBJ (City and Borough of Juneau) are described by watershed in our Juneau section, the more remote portions of our ‘home provinces’ (for example, Tracy Arm in Taku province) are treated here.
