In the Great Basin, as in other semiarid regions, riparian areas exhibit widespread degradation. It has been estimated that more than 50 percent of the riparian areas (streams and their associated riparian ecosystems) in the Great Basin are currently in poor ecological condition (Jenson and Platts ).Price: $ Established by the USDA Forest Service inthe Great Basin Ecosystem Management Project for Restoring and Maintaining Sustainable Riparian Ecosystems is a large-scale research study that uses an interdisciplinary approach to examine the effects of climate change and human disturbance on riparian areas.

Structured as a collaborative effort between management and research, the project. Most Great Basin riparian and aquatic ecosystems are associated with streams and springs that are comparatively small and isolated from one another because of the natu-rally arid climate.

There are few rivers and lakes in the region. Surface waters and aquifers that support springs provide the only water available to humans and by: 4. COVID Resources.

Progress 10/01/02 to 09/30/03 Outputs This research is using mechanistic studies to evaluate concepts and techniques to restore and maintain the integrity of Great Basin riparian ecosystems and watersheds.

It has focused on determining the. Riparian ecosystems are found alongside rivers, creeks, wetlands and any other water networks. They are the interface between water and land-based ecosystems, where components of both ecosystems can act and water-loving plants thrive in the water rich soils.

Typically, riparian areas comprise less than 1% of the landmass across North America. While native biodiversity and ecological functions and services are often reduced in novel riparian ecosystems compared with their native counterparts, 6,7,9,12 there is growing acknowledgement that exotic species in riparian zones can also support a range of ecological functions and benefits to biodiversity and people.
