The Importance of a Stream’s Physical Habitat Condition and How to Measure It

We are pleased to be able reschedule the webinar “The Importance of a Stream’sPhysical Habitat Condition and How to Measure It” for August 5, 2010 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

The webinar will be presented by James Harrington, Staff Environmental Scientist in

Department of Fish and Game (DFG Water Pollution Control Laboratory).

Healthy streams and rivers have complex habitats and physical dimensions that favor a

thriving and diverse plant and animal community.  The SWAMP physical habitat procedures attempt to measure the physical state of wadeable streams and the human stressors that might alter those measurements.  In this webinar, Jim will describe all the physical habitat features that are measured using the SWAMP Bioassessment SOP and how that data is used in assessment reports. He will also discuss how those measures might be used in the future to produce an Index of Physical Condition..
