Technical Abstract: The Willamette Valley of Oregon has extensive areas of poorly drained farmland adjacent to riparian areas that contrast in physical and biological characteristics. Understanding how these physical and biological differences impact riparian zone function is critical in developing riparian function criteria and policy that are effective in improving water quality.
