Description: Habitat characteristics and diversity of terrestrial vertebrates were studied September 1989 to August 1990 in valley-foothill riparian habitat on two study areas: Dye Creek, Tehama County, and Avenales Ranch, San Luis Obispo County, California. The assumption considered was that differences between study areas in physical and vegetation characteristics would be reflected in wildlife diversity. Spring-season results showed that species richness of both higher plants and terrestrial- vertebrate wildlife averaged about twice as great at Dye Creek as at Avenales Ranch. No differences in vegetation structure between study areas were evident, thus, other factors such as elevation, mean annual rainfall, and plant-species richness were apparently influencing terrestrial vertebrate richness on these sites.
