The ecology and uses of riparian zones

Principal Investigators:

Robert J. Naiman

The unique role of riparian zones in regulating watershed ¿scale processes has received enormous attention in the last two decades. It is now known that riparian zones strongly influence land-water interactions, provide habitat for an unusual number of species, adjust community level characteristics to specific landforms, and are well adapted to physical as well as biological disturbance regimes. These, and other characteristics, have resulted in the widespread use of riparian zones as prescriptions for landscape management. The purpose of this... more
