Here's another thang I found on the fisheries-science list. This is the kind
of science one has to address if you want to "save and restore" a stream.
Rob Carillio's project in Ohio, and his streamside sign, addresses these
issues on a less technical level.

ANNOUNCEMENT/FORMAL CALL FOR PAPERS (December 15, 2001 deadline)

Symposium on Small Stream Channels and their Riparian Zones: Their
Form, Function and Ecological Importance in a Watershed Context

February 18-20, 2002 -The University of British Columbia, Vancouver,
BC, Canada
Sponsored by:

British Columbia Ministry of Forests; The University of British
Columbia; Fisheries and Oceans Canada; Forest Renewal British
Columbia; United States Forest Service

Recent developments have focused international attention on the
disparate nature of our understanding and management of riparian zones
along low-order streams within small drainage basins. Incomplete
knowledge of the ecological functions of "headwater" streams and
riparian zones contributes to differences in riparian forestry
practices and management among jurisdictions in the Pacific northwest.
The lack of a strong scientific basis for operational prescriptions
has led to difficulty in justifying various levels of riparian
vegetation retention along small streams for the purpose of protecting
streams, aquatic ecosystems, riparian wildlife and water quality. This
symposium will provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of
cutting-edge scientific research covering hydrology, geomorphology,
and aquatic and terrestrial ecology, as they relate to small streams
and their riparian zones.
