Abstract : Healthy riparian vegetation tends to stabilize streambanks, provides shade that prevents excessive water temperature fluctuations, performs a vital role in nutrient cycling and water quality, improves aesthetic and recreational benefits of a site, and is immensely productive as wildlife habitat. This report summarizes existing techniques for the prediction of resistance coefficients associated with riparian vegetation.
