Riparian Forest Buffers: Function & Design for Protection & Enha;1996, p5
The article offers suggestions for the restoration of quality of aquatic ecosystems by establishing streamside forests. It reports that the repair of aquatic ecosystem is necessary for enhancing water quality. It discusses several factors that should be considered during streamside forestation which include sediment and erosion control, nutrient management, and temperature regulation. Also discussed are practices required during forestation including periodic ground shaping and debris removal.
