Specific measureable objectives
Hypothesis a.2.3: riparian buffer zones do not increase prespawning or egg-to-smolt survival of salmon.
Underlying assumptions or critical constraints
Brief schedule of activities
Significant areas of remaining salmon habitat are affected by land management activities such as logging, road building and mineral extraction. Need to establish effective buffer zones relative to environmental, hydrological and climatelogical conditions.
Summary of expected outcome
Effective criteria for buffer strips for a wide variety of activities over a large number of land types.
Dependencies/opportunities for cooperation
Sediment, Temperature, riparian condition, instream complexity, fish use.
