Title: Influences of watershed geomorphology on extent and composition of riparian vegetation

Author: Engelhardt, Blake M.; Weisberg, Peter J.; Chambers, Jeanne C.

Date: 2011

Source: Journal of Vegetation Science. doi: 10.1111/j.1654-1103.2011.01328.x

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Watershed (drainage basin) morphometry and geology were derived from digital data sets (DEMs and geologic maps). Riparian corridors were classified into five vegetation types (riparian forest, riparian shrub, wet/mesic meadow, dry meadow and shrub dry meadow) using high-resolution aerial photography. Regression and multivariate analyses were used to relate geomorphic characteristics to riparian vegetation extent and composition.

Keywords: basin morphometry, flood regime, forest, Great Basin, lithology, meadow, Nevada, ordination, scale, small watersheds
