Index to cottonwood establishment potential, An
The logic and an application of a program that calculates the potential for the establishment of cottonwood and other riparian tress along rivers in arid North America is the topic of this paper. Establishment of cottonwood is essentially restricted to riverine sites that are moist and have clean substrate. Seedlings can become established on moist, open areas along the edge of the channel and within the channel. Streamflows following establishment may remove many of the seedlings.
