VEGETATION CHARACTERIZATION OF THREE CONTRASTING RIPARIAN AREAS, WILLAMETTE VALLEY, OREGON Lynne S. McAllister1, Kathleen A. Dwire3, and Stephen M, Griffith1 ABSTRACT: Much of the native riparian vegetation of the Willamette Valley, Oregon, has been replaced with agricultural crops or invasive non-native plant species. Riparian zones in the Western United States tend to be much narrower than in the East and contrast highly with surrounding uplands. Riparian vegetation often consists of a lush mixture of trees, shrubs, and herbaceous vegetation, while adjacent upland areas are typically non-forested ecosystems such as grasslands and deserts.

As an approach to providing baseline information about riparian ecosystems, this study characterized the dominant riparian vegetation along unmanaged streams in central Oregon Coast Range forests. We systematically sampled along various reaches of nine first- to fourth-order streams, all of which were subject to stand-replacing fires ca. Cited by:

Decades of intensive use of riparian areas and other wetlands in central and eastern Oregon have caused substantial degradation of their ecological structure, composition and function. Rehabilitation, restoration and monitoring of wetland ecosystems is currently a high priority for many land management agencies and by: 3.

Crowe, Bernard L. Kovalchik, Marie Kerr. A riparian zone or riparian area is the interface between land and a river or stream. Riparian is also the proper nomenclature for one of the terrestrial biomes of the Earth.
Plant habitats and communities along the river margins and banks are called riparian vegetation, characterized by hydrophilic an zones are important in ecology, environmental resource management, and civil.

But restoration to presettlement conditions is often difficult. Healthy riparian and wetland areas are critical to healthy watersheds across Oregon and Washington. Wetlands support vegetation adapted to soils saturated by surface or ground water.
Examples of wetlands include marshes, swamps, and bogs. Riparian areas serve as habitats and travel corridors for vegetative communities. They link wetlands to streams and upland areas.
Riparian vegetation in the catchment has diverse distributions. In areas where phreatic levels are high but rarely inundated, willows (Salix spp., Salix alba), oaks (Quercus pyrenaica), elms (Ulmus minor), and spiny plants (Rubus ulmifolius, Crataegus monogyna, Lonicera spp., Prunus spona and Rosa spp.) upper mountain areas, riparian vegetation is dominated by Betula pendula.

The Ecological Classification of Native Wetland & Riparian Vegetation of Washington is essentially a modification of the U.S. National Vegetation Classification (USNVC) that incorporates elements of other wetland d of using USNVC Alliances, WNHP developed a new classification level between the USNVC group and association levels called ‘Subgroup’.
Riparian zones are more numerous than wetlands in forested areas west of the summit of the Cascade Range and are of much greater signjficance to forest management.
Riparian zones are of paramount concern as wildlife habitat for the following reasons: 1. Most riparian zones contain water, cover, and food-the three critical habitat components.

Bank stabilization and water quality protection. The roots of riparian trees and shrubs help hold streambanks in place. classifications developed and applied to riparian systems, for example, in Nevada (Swanson et al.Jensen et al.

The lowland riparian forests and shrublands in eastern Oregon (and Idaho and Washington) are part of this habitat type. They are quite diverse, including forests, woodlands and shrublands along rivers and streams, but occupy narrow strips so are poorly mapped.
Aquatic and riparian vegetation is important for the health of waterways, contributing to the balance of oxygen, nutrients and sediment, and providing habitat and food for fauna. Aquatic plants and algae grow within the waterway channel.
Some are completely free floating (e.g. filamentous green algae) but most have roots or root-like structures. the Oregon Department of State Lands regulate wetlands development. Clatsop County’s wetland regulations are separate from the state and federal programs, but the County work with these other agencies on wetland issues.
Riparian areas are vegetated lands alongside open water, such as lakes and rivers. Riparian vegetation, like. impacts, quantifying habitat characteristics, determining the effects of vegetation removal, etc.

A forebay or pretreatment unit is necessary to help protect the wetland from excessive sediment loads and other pollutants. The edges, and much of the shallow area, support wetland vegetation and the center area is typically open water most of the year.
