Title: Water quality, biodiversity, and codes of practice in relation to harvesting forest plantations in streamside management zones

Author: Neary, Daniel G.; Smethurst, Philip J.; Baillie, Brenda; Petrone, Kevin C.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous

Description: Streamside management zones (SMZs) are special landscape units that include riparian areas and adjacent lands that mitigate the movement of sediment, nutrients and other chemicals from upland forest and agricultural management areas into streams. The size, shape, and management of SMZs are governed by various combinations of economic, ecological, and regulatory factors. Although SMZs used around the world have a wide range of widths, in many cases they are similar at 5-20 m.

Keywords: streamside management zones (SMZs), landscape units, riparian areas
