Because riparian areas are integral components of larger watersheds (drainage basins), management of riparian areas should attempt whenever possible to. management of watersheds. Examples from rural and urban areas illustrate how riparian restoration can be integrated into watershed projects.

Designing Riparian Management at the Reach and Watershed Scales. Riparian management is often concerned with protecting riparian habitats and the important interactions between the riparian and stream systems (sunlight, stream temperature, wood recruitment, stream bank erosion etc.).

Management of Pacific Northwest riparian forests is necessary because many of these forests have been dramatically changed from their original makeup. The primary interest in riparian forest and aquatic ecosystems under the Northwest Forest Plan (NWFP) is the need to restore stream habitat for fish populations, particularly Anadromous of these forests have been grazed by cattle.

"Riparian or streamside areas are the focus of considerable management and public interest in the interior Northwest. Unfortunately, the vegetation and geomorphic characteristics of streamside areas are difficult to assess across large landscapes because streamside areas are.

Healthy riparian and wetland areas are critical to healthy watersheds. Wetlands support vegetation adapted to soils saturated by surface or ground water. Examples of wetlands include marshes, swamps, and bogs.

Riparian areas serve as habitats and travel corridors for vegetative communities. They link wetlands to streams and upland areas. Riparian Zone Management in the Pacific Northwest: Who's Cutting What.

fire) have played in the ecosystem will aid in restoring native communities. In this context, restoration and management plans must reflect a watershed approach to riparian improvement.

Although grazing practices initiated in the mids have dramatically improved uplands, riparian conditions have continued to decline in most areas. Many grazing management strategies are being used to restore riparian systems, but there is little understanding of basic stream processes or riparian vegetation by: Shewmaker, Glenn E.

Thus, legal protections for riparian areas and any recommendations for changes in their management must account for both the property interests in the relevant waters and lands and the fact that most riparian areas are linear features that cross ownership/jurisdictional boundaries.

The principal management unit is the riparian management area (RMA), which has been in con-tinuous and consistent use across the province since This unit consists of a riparian management zone (RMZ) and, sometimes, a no-harvest riparian reserve zone (RRZ) located immediately adjacent to the water body (Figuresand ).

Sep 26,  · The Pacific Northwest is a global ecological "hotspot" because of its relatively healthy native ecosystems, a high degree of biodiversity, and the number and scope of restoration initiatives that have been undertaken there.

The development of WQCM-R was based on watershed management theories that suggest which environmental variables should be included in an examination of riparian zones, as well as how important each variable would be for prioritizing a riparian zoneAuthor: Samuel F.

Trees, shrubs, and other types of vegetation create a filter strip along waterways. These “streamside forests” are made up of plants that line the waterway from the impacts of surrounding land use.Riparian Proper Functioning Condition (PFC) describes assessing on-the-ground conditions of a riparian area.

A healthy riparian area is resilient. PFC gauges a riparian area’s resiliency, or ability to hold together, during high stream flows. They are among the first landscape features to reflect damage from improper management or natural events, such as a flood or drought.
