DescriptionThe water and land-system processes through which timber harvesting affects anadromous fish habitat in western North America are discussed. The effects of timber harvesting on the water balance that regulates streamflow are evaluated, as are direct influences of harvesting on slope stability, erosion, and the introduction of debris in to stream channels. The effects of removal of riparian vegetation are included. Techniques presently available to resource managers for predicting these effects are documented.
