    Description

    The Bakersfield District of the Bureau of Land Management conducted an inventory of rangeland riparian systems using a new method developed by a Bureau-wide task force to inventory, monitor and classify riparian areas. Data on vegetation composition were collected for 65 miles of streams and entered into a hierarchical vegetation classification system. Ratings of hydrologic function, vegetative structure, and vegetative use by grazing animals were employed to measure impacts by land uses and potential for recovery with proper management. The data for each of 116 stream reaches was entered into a dBase III program for tabular analyses and will be entered into the Geographic Information System (GIS) for spatial analysis and cartographic output.
