In this thesis I examined two important aspects of clearcut harvesting along small headwater streams and their riparian zones. The objectives of the study were: 1) to investigate the impacts of clearcut harvesting on the morphological features of headwater systems and the pattern of recovery of those impacts over time, and 2) to explore the response of headwater riparian understory vegetation to clearcut harvesting over time.
