dc.description.abstractIn order to preserve valuable riparian functioning, forest harvesting in Canada attempts to protect riparian areas through the application of a no-harvest buffer zone around water bodies, and more recently through the emulation of natural disturbance patterns. Partial harvesting with maintenance of understory vegetation may emulate natural disturbance better than clearcut harvesting with conventional intact riparian buffers.en_US
