    Woody riparian areas associated with lotic systems (perennial or intermittent) are the predominant features of the mapping effort. This is consistent with the classical concept of riparian areas, facilitates a high degree of map accuracy, and identifies most of the riparian areas in the western United States. However, emergent cover. Riparian ecosystems are declining throughout the southwestern United States, where many have disappeared completely; yet progress toward checking their decline has been marginal, and the results of only a few recovery projects have been evaluated.

The demand for water resulting from massive population and economic growth in the southwestern U.S. overwhelmed traditional uses of riparian areas. As a consequence, many of these uniquely-structured ecosystems have been altered or destroyed.

Within recent years people have become increasingly aware of the many uses and benefits of riparian zones aCited by: To find out more about changes of the vegetation in the riparian areas of the southwestern United States check out the following book: The Ribbon of Green: Change in Riparian Vegetation in the Southwestern United States, by Robert H.

Webb, Stanley A. Leake and Raymond M. Turner. The impacts to riparian areas are manifested in the quality of adjacent waterbodies throughout the United States. Only about two percent of the nation’s streams and rivers are classified as having high water quality (Benke, ).

Woody wetlands constitute a relatively small but extremely important part of the landscape in the southwestern United States. These riparian habitats support more than one-third of the region’s vascular plant species, are home to a variety of wildlife, and provide essential havens for dozens of migratory by: Suggested Citation: "5 MANAGEMENT OF RIPARIAN AREAS."

The goal of this long-term project is to reestablish km 2. A large percentage of wildlife depends on riparian areas for foraging, nesting or cover during part or their entire life cycle.

This is even more true for the southwestern United States where riparian areas are recognized as critical areas (DeBano and Schmidt, ). 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.

Riparian Areas. riparian areas are three-dimensional ecotones of interaction that include terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, that extend down to the groundwater, up above the canopy, outward across the floodplain, up the near-slopes that drain to the water, laterally into the terrestrial ecosystem, and along the water course at a variable with (Ilhard et al., ).
