DescriptionThe nearly 100 papers in these proceedings are aimed at a diverse audience of resource managers, environmental con-sultants, researchers, landowners, environmental activists, and a variety of user groups. Some of the papers explain how streams interact with the plants and animals at their margins and with the land that they occupy to accomplish a range of important functions, including protecting the banks from erosion, reducing the impacts of flooding, providing wildlife habitat, protecting instream habitat for fishes, producing forage for livestock, and enhancing human lives. Biological diversity in western lands is often directly related to these corridors, which also serve as major routes for migratory birds. Special attention is given to the several threatened and endangered species which need riparian habitats and to the response of riparian systems to such disturbances as fire, logging, landslides and diversion for power or water supply. A concluding section deals with measures being taken to preserve and restore riparian lands, particularly along large rivers and in the cities. Special attention is given in some of these papers to revegetation techniques.
