Water quality is a critical conservation issue worldwide and in the United States. Nutrient loading as a result of nonpoint source not only degrades freshwater habitats due to eutrophication, but is causing dead zones in such important commercial fishing grounds as the Gulf of Mexico and the Chesapeake Bay. One technique for mitigation of nonpoint source pollution is the establishment of forested riparian buffer strips, which have long been used to prevent erosion and runoff in agricultural landscapes.
