Relations among vegetation, processes, and landforms are described here for representative streams of four areas of the United-States: high-gradient streams of the humid east, coastal-plain streams, Great Plains streams, and stream channels of the semi-arid southwestern United States. Channel-equilibrium conditions control stability of the coincident fluvial landform and attendant vegetation pattern throughout the continent. In most situations, riparian-vegetation patterns are indicative of specific landforms and, thus, of ambient hydrogeomorphic conditions
