Testing urban drivers of riparian woody vegetation composition in a precipitation-limited system

Joanna Solins & Mary Cadenasso
In precipitation-limited regions, where water availability is a key driver of vegetation patterns, altered hydrology in urban areas may have a particularly strong effect on riparian plant communities. Urban water inputs can create perennial flows in formerly intermittent streams, potentially providing a water subsidy to riparian plants during dry seasons. However, during rainy seasons, increased storm flow magnitudes in urban areas can cause stream channel incision and associated lowered water tables. Channel incision may reduce...
