• Based on analysis of hydrologic data, dendrochronologic data, historic channel mapping, and aerial photography riparian recruitment appears to occur approximately once per decade in the post-regulation period. A comparison to stands that recruited in the pre-regulation period is needed to quantify differences between pre and post regulation period temporal and spatial characteristics of riparian forest regeneration. • Recruitment did result from the recent large flood events of 1983-1986, and…

Importance of Hydrologic and Landscape Heterogeneity for Restoring Bank Swallow (Riparia riparia) Colonies along the Sacramento River, California
Human activities have degraded riparian systems in numerous ways, including homogenization of the floodplain landscape and minimization of extreme flows. We analyzed the effects of changes in these
Using Science to Evaluate Restoration Efforts and Ecosystem Health on the Sacramento River Project, California
The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and its partners are attempting to restore the riparian ecosystem of the Sacramento River over ~100 river miles, from Red Bluff to Colusa. To evaluate baseline ecosystem
Application and validation study of the HEC-RAS-RVSM model to the Sacramento River
PURPOSE: The riparian vegetation simulation module (RVSM) was developed and integrated into the Hydrologic Engineering Center-River Analysis System (HEC-RAS) to predict spatially explicit seed

Abstract: The composition and structure of native riverine ecosystems are tightly linked to natural hydrologic variability. By managing river flows for water supplies and power generation, water
