Discharge and suspended sediment a paired watershed study examining the effects of contemporary forest harvesting in the Oregon Coast RangeJeff Hatten, Catalina Segura, Kevin Bladon, Cody Hale, George G. Ice & John Stednick
Forest harvesting practices can expose mineral soils, decrease infiltration capacities of soils, disturb the stream bank and channel, and increase erosion and fine sediment supply to stream channels. To reduce nonpoint source sediment pollution associated with forest management activities and to maintain the high water quality typically provided from forests, best management practices (BMPs) were developed and implemented. The Alsea Watershed Study was an important early research site that lead to the development of contemporary...
Dataset: Experimental evaluation of herbicide use on biodiversity, ecosystem services and timber production tradeoffs in forest plantations.Thomas D Stokely
This dataset consists of species richness of native plants, pollinators, and birds, ecosystem service response variables, and timber and revenue projections from forest plantations of the Oregon Coast Range, collected during the first 6 years of stand establishment (2011-2016). The objectives of the Intensive Forest Management experiment were to quantify the effects of herbicide use on biodiversity and ecosystem services and the relative tradeoffs between timber production and ecosystem services.
