Title: Geomorphic and riparian forest influences on characteristics of large wood and large-wood jams in old-growth and second-growth forests in Northern Michigan, USA

Author: Morris, Arthur E.L.; Goebel, P. Charles; Palik, Brian J.;

Date: 2007

Source: Earth Surface Processes and Landforms. 32: 1131-1153.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Large wood (LW; pieces with diameter greater than 10 cm and length greater than 1 m) and large-wood jams (LWJs; two or more pieces of LW in contact with each other) are important components of stream ecosystems that are often distributed along stream channels in response to geomorphic and riparian forest factors that interact hierarchically. As a result, information on these relationships is valuable for predicting patterns of wood accumulation and characteristics of individual pieces of wood. We studied relationships between geomorphic and riparian factors and LW and LWJ structure in different geomorphic settings associated with old-growth and second-growth settings in Upper Michigan.

Keywords: Lake States, hierarchy theory, large wood, redundancy analysis, regression tree
