Restoring Cottonwood & Willow Riparian Forests: A Field-Calibrated Seedling Recruitment Model for the Lower San Joaquin Basin

In California’s Central Valley, widespread flow regulation and land development have greatly reduced the extent and sustainability of native cottonwood and willow riparian forests, which provide critical habitat for many species of wildlife and fish. The results of a three-year study of seedling recruitment processes were used to develop an ecological modeling approach for supporting restoration planning.
