    Description

    Abstract - It is impractical to address the long-term effect of forest management strategies on erosion, sedimentation, and the resultant damage to fish habitat experimentally because to do so would require studying large watersheds for a century or more. Monte Carlo simulations were conducted on three hypothetical 10 000 ha, fifth-order forested watersheds. One watershed was left undisturbed, one was completely clearcut and roaded in a decade, and one was cut at the rate of 1% each year. Each cutting strategy was repeated in succeeding centuries
