Abstract

Major floods cause channel changes ranging from complete cross-sectional change to small fluctuations in pool area. The AA. used stream cross-section data on 30 heavily grazed rangeland streams in north-central Nevada to assess changes over a climatically variable 14-year period. They tested (Rosgen, 1994) assertion that stream-type changes are predictable and more common on certain types of streams. On streams that did not change type, the AA. assessed the magnitude of habitat changes and whether these changes are predictable based on stream type
