    Description

    Large woody debris is recognized as an important component of stream geomorphology and stream ecosystem function, and forest-land management is recognized as an important control on the quantity (and size and species distributions) of wood available for recruitment to streams. Much of the wood present in streams comes from adjacent forests, and riparian management practices now refl ect our understanding of the role these forests play in modulating and maintaining stream environments. In steep terrain, slope failures also carry wood (and sediment) to streams from upslope source areas. In these environments, periodic inputs of wood and sediment from landslides and debris fl ows also play an important role in stream geomorphology and ecosystem dynamics.
