Great river wood dynamics in northern Canada
Downed wood is a resource easily utilized by plants and animals from the forests to the sea and is essential for many ecosystems. The diverse benefits that wood brings to streams and riparian corridors are well documented ...
Instream wood loads and channel complexity in headwater southern Rocky Mountain streams under alternative states
Author(s):Gonzalez, Bridget Livers
Small, forested streams are symbiotic with riparian processes, and thus land use changes to their riparian forests can have lasting effects on stream channel form and function. The first part of this dissertation evaluates ...
Crossing a threshold: the legacy of 19th century logging on log jams and carbon storage in Front Range headwater streams
Instream wood has an important effect on the geomorphic and ecological function of streams, but human impacts have altered both the forests that supply wood and the streams themselves. These changes may have pushed many ...
Instream wood loads in old-growth and non-old-growth montane forests
Although several studies document instream wood loads and geomorphic effects in subalpine forests of the southern Rocky Mountain region, little is known of instream wood loads in lower elevation, montane forests of the ...
Wood in neotropical headwater streams, Costa Rica
Author(s):Cadol, Daniel D.
Wood has been shown to be an integral component of forest streams throughout the temperate climate zone, both in terms of the physical structure of the channel and in terms of aquatic ecosystem function, but the function ...
