Comment:

This study covers a key area of needed research because it focuses on ecological management of riparian zones. The proposal's drawback was that it was not well integrated with other projects and its relation to the Fish and Wildlife Program was not clearly stated. Return to the River calls for food web studies, but the proposal did not clearly relate to Return to the River. Studies of the dynamics of fish community needed more detail. In spite of these shortcomings, the ISRP strongly recommends this project for funding.
