  • About the Edition

    Because watersheds are the foundation for implementing ecosystem management, in the spring of 1993 the Bureau of Land Management began the complex process of developing standards and initial procedural criteria for conducting landscape-level watershed analysis on those districts involved with implementing the President"s Forest Plan for the Pacific Northwest. Watershed analysis is a tool aimed at helping understand and document the components, processes, functions, and interactions that occur in a specific geographic area. One of the goals is to promote the sustainability of watersheds by protecting the processes and functions that occur within and across different spatial and temporal components. An interdisciplinary team of BLM State and District office specialists, was established to accomplish this task.

      These have been applied to analysis of watersheds in the Mid-Atlantic region. Impacts Landscape-level ecological classification and mapping are central to systematizing conservation programs and improving land resource decisions. The Pennsylvania methodology enables landscape level mapping to be accomplished more accurately and objectively. Landscape-scale conservation is a holistic approach to landscape management, aiming to reconcile the competing objectives of nature conservation and economic activities across a given landscape. Landscape-scale conservation may sometimes be attempted because of climate can be seen as an alternative to site based conservation.. Many global problems such as poverty, food security.

    @article{osti_, title = {Entering the watershed}, author = {Doppelt, B and Scurlock, M and Frissell, C and Karr, J}, abstractNote = {The ecological integrity of a river is a direct function of the health of its watershed. Riverine pollution, habitat degradation, and extinction of aquatic biodiversity are all issues that must be addressed at the ecosystem level.   Over the course of the summer, we worked with a crew to develop new workforce skills while also collecting massive amounts of data—mapping miles of road, noting conditions of stream culverts, and surveying 20 kilometers of extended coho salmon habitat—moving one step closer to a landscape-level watershed inventory.

    This book seeks to meet this need by providing a conceptual framework and illustrating potential applications for methods such as pattern analysis, spatial statistics, fractals, spatial modeling, broad-scale studies, and extrapolation across scales. Each technique is discussed in sufficient detail to be adaptable to a variety of research : $ Building on Science to Implement Landscape Level Treatments for Fire Resilience April , Garden Pavilion, McClellan, California Presentation Biographies Doug Barber, Member, Amador-Calaveras Consensus Group Running Gold Road, Sutter Creek, CA, , [email protected] Doug Barber retired from the USDA Forest Service in August,

In IWM for instance, Japan's success can be unique due to a number of factors: smaller watershed topography leading to closer physical interaction between upstream and downstream communities Author: Bruce Shindler.

Forested catchments throughout the world are known for producing high quality water for human use. In the 20th Century, experimental forest catchment studies played a key role in studying the processes contributing to high water quality. The hydrologic processes investigated on these paired catchments have provided the science base for examining water quality responses to natural disturbances Cited by: 7.

Water quality is highly influenced by the composition and configuration of landscape structure, and regulated by various spatiotemporal factors. Using the Wujiang river watershed as a case study, this research assesses the influence of landscape metrics—including composition and spatial configuration—on river water quality.
