Geomorphic sensitivity and ecological resilience of Great Basin streams and riparian ecosystems
View the report.
A new USDA Forest Service, Rocky Mountain General Technical Report on geomorphic sensitivity and ecological resilience of Great Basin streams and riparian ecosystems is now available. It provides the information needed to evaluate the sensitivity and resilience of Great Basin watersheds based on the characteristics of the streams and riparian ecosystems, determine how they are likely to respond to disturbance and management actions, and prioritize areas for conservation and restoration actions.
A website has been developed that provides an overview of GTR-426 and has downloadable, autofill forms for implementing the assessment.
