A bioregion is a natural (not necessarily political) jurisdiction. Typical examples include:
  • a watershed? - the most common kind - all the land that drains into a particular river or body of water, e.g. Gulf of Maine? region?
  • an ocean current? and all those areas affected by it, e.g. Gulf Stream region?
  • a terrestrial ecoregion? and terrestrial ecozone?
  • a biome? or micro-climate? or garden zone? area

A bioregional democracy derives its political border?s strictly from a map of such ecological sensitivies and relationships. A bioregional multi-member district is a form of bioregional democracy with Single Transferable Vote and Mixed Member Proportional Representation?.
