Seasonal water limitation exerts a strong ecological filter on stream communities in semiarid regions. For firstyear riparian willow and poplar tree seedlings, desiccation from rapidly declining river flows can limit reproduction, especially on rivers in which flow regulation and land conversion have limited the amount of area available for recruitment. We investigated survivorship of first-year riparian seedlings to simulated river stage declines, focusing on the three dominant species in… CONTINUE READING
