NANFA-- Our Vanishing Riparian Landscapes in the Southwest
Fri, 16 Feb 2001 22:41:31 EST

" Late in the first millennium, Pueblo settlers began the process of
clearing, modifying and polluting Southwestern rivers and streams and the
riparian (or, bordering) woodlands, making way for a sedentary community life
with villages, irrigated fields and commerce. Early in the third millennium,
Euro-American settlers have very nearly finished the process, having
profoundly altered an estimated 90 percent of the riparian landscape and
having planned changes for much of the remaining 10 percent."
