Definitions
• Riparian Area: The interface between land and the
banks of a stream, river, or other body of water. We
use the term riparian in its broadest sense to
include areas adjacent to a stream, river, or lake,
recognizing that a diverse mixture of different
definitions exists.
• Wetlands: Those areas that are inundated or
saturated by surface or ground water at a
frequency and duration sufficient to support, and
that under normal circumstances do support, a
prevalence of vegetation typically adapted for life in
saturated soil conditions.

Riparian vegetation
• Riparian management zones are
areas next to lakes and streams
where timber harvesting
practices are modified to protect
water quality, fish habitat, and
other aquatic resources.
• Riparian management zones help
to:
• Filter sediment and nutrients
from runoff;
• Allow water to soak into the
ground;
• Stabilize lakeshores and stream
banks;
• Shade streams; and
• Provide food and habitat for
aquatic organisms.

5 final riparian vegetation smj july25_english

  • 1. Indicator 5: Riparian/Wetland Vegetation Condition Watershed Condition Framework Application Workshop Polyana, Ukraine July 23-27, 2018 Sheela Johnson Natural Resource Specialist, USDA Forest Service
  • 2. Definitions • Riparian Area: The interface between land and the banks of a stream, river, or other body of water. We use the term riparian in its broadest sense to include areas adjacent to a stream, river, or lake, recognizing that a diverse mixture of different definitions exists. • Wetlands: Those areas that are inundated or saturated by surface or ground water at a frequency and duration sufficient to support, and that under normal circumstances do support, a prevalence of vegetation typically adapted for life in saturated soil conditions. U.S. Forest Service Watershed Condition Classification Technical Guide, p. 29

  • 5. Riparian vegetation • Riparian management zones are areas next to lakes and streams where timber harvesting practices are modified to protect water quality, fish habitat, and other aquatic resources. • Riparian management zones help to: • Filter sediment and nutrients from runoff; • Allow water to soak into the ground; • Stabilize lakeshores and stream banks; • Shade streams; and • Provide food and habitat for aquatic organisms. Source: State of New Hampshire, 2016 stream Riparian zone
  • 7. Riparian zones: last line of defense
  • 9. Indicator Attribute Good (1) Functioning Properly Fair (2) Functioning at Risk Poor (3) Impaired Function 5. Riparian/ Wetland Vegetation 5.1 Vegetation condition Native vegetation is vigorous, healthy, and diverse in age, structure, cover, and composition on more than 80 percent of the riparian/ wetland areas in the watershed. Native vegetation demonstrates a moderate loss of vigor, reproduction, and growth, or it changes in composition. Areas displaying light to moderate impact may occupy 25 to 80 percent of the overall riparian area with only a few areas displaying significant impacts. Native vegetation is vigorous, healthy, and diverse in age, structure, cover, and composition on less than 25 percent of the riparian/ wetland areas in the watershed.
  • 10. 5.1 Vegetation Condition 100% 80% 25% 0% % watershed with healthy native vegetation cover
  • 11. U.S. Example Process • Riparian mapping not available • Riparian vegetation surveys not available for large areas • Riparian harvest restrictions present for many decades • Mapped a 90 m (300 ft) buffer on each side of perennial streams • Identified areas lacking vegetation in aerial photos or land use maps
  • 12. U.S. Example Typical Condition Impacted condition Divide impacted area by total riparian/ wetland area in watershed
