Title: Spawning bed sedimentation studies in northern California streams

Author: Burns, James W.;

Date: 1970

Source: California Fish and Game 56(4): 253-270.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Changes in the size composition of spawning bed materials in six coastal streams were monitored for 3 years to determine the effects of logging on the habitat of silver salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) and trout (Salmo gairdnerii gairdnerii and S. clarkii clarkii). Four test streams were sampled before, during and after logging. Two streams in unlogged watersheds and the undisturbed upstream section of one test stream served as controls. A variety of stream types in second-growth and old-growth forests was selected for observation.
