    Description

    Riparian plant communities are extremely diverse. Their structure and composition can affect fish and wildlife habitat, while trees and associated vegetation can provide sustainable sources of forest products. Management of riparian vegetation can greatly affect these values. Little information exists however, about the consequences of actively managing riparians to develop desirable habitat characteristics and enhance function versus setting aside areas as passively managed reserves. Management options are limited in riparian areas because of concerns for the protection of values provided by these sensitive areas.
