Riparian Areas of the Southwestern United States: Hydrology, Ecology, and Management

Synopsis

Riparian Areas of the Southwestern United States: Hydrology, Ecology, and Management provides hydrologists, watershed managers, land-use planners, educators, policymakers, and non-governmental organizations with a comprehensive account of the multiple benefits and conflicts arising from the uniquely structured ecosystems of arid and semi-arid regions. The text describes the inhabitants of southwestern riparian ecosystems and addresses the research, planning, and management concerns for these fragile ecosystems in relation to impacts of flows of water and sediment, livestock grazing and other human activities, and maintenance of key wildlife and fish habitats.
