Habitats or environmental factors that convey spatial and temporal resistance and/or resilience to biotic communities that have been impacted by biophysical disturbances may be called refugia. Most…
A Disturbance-Based Ecosystem Approach to Maintaining and Restoring Freshwater Habitats of Evolutionarily Significant Units of Anadromous Salmonids in the Pacific Northwest
It is believed that it is more prudent to modify human- imposed disturbance regimes to create and maintain the necessary range of habitat conditions in space and time within and among watersheds across the distributional range of an ESU.
