    Description

    One of the most wide-ranging scientific treatments of riparian vegetation of the American Southwest (exclusive of New Mexico and southwestern Colorado) can be found in the 2007 book, The Ribbon of Green by Robert Webb, Stanley Leake, and Raymond Turner (Webb et al. hereafter). In The Ribbon of Green, the authors use sets of matched photographs to evaluate and interpret historical changes in riparian vegetation along southwestern streams that have taken place since the late 19th century. As stated in the book’s preface, the authors “concentrate on the question of long-term changes, addressing whether we have endured a net loss of woody riparian vegetation” over that time (Webb et al. 2007:x).
