      Tree growth along the Lower Dolores River was low during severe drought years with low streamflow, and growth decreased sharply when annual streamflow was less than * m 3 year Our results provide guidelines for flow releases from McPhee Dam to mitigate drought impacts on riparian tree growth along the Lower Dolores by: 9. Desert Riparian habitats are found along permanent streams and at seeps and springs in the Mojave and Sonoran deserts, and in desert canyons of the Peninsular ranges. These habitats generally are found at elevations less than m ( ft); however, willow thickets may be found well above that level in mountains (Cheatham and Haller ).

    Like other great desert rivers, the Colorado River in the United States and Mexico is highly regulated to provide water for human use. No water is officially allotted to support the natural ecosystems in the delta of the river in Mexico. However, precipitation is inherently variable in this watershed, and from –, 15% of the mean annual flow of the Lower Colorado River . The Saltcedar Zone runs from the junction of the Rio Hardy and Colorado River to the estuary of the river in the Gulf of California. The Rio Hardy carries agricultural drain water (3–5 ppt salinity) from the Mexicali Valley, and ground water salinities in the Saltcedar Zone are 9 ppt or higher (Nagler et al., b).The river is perennial from the river junction to the Gulf of California Cited by:

We monitored vegetation density and abundance of birds during the breed-ing season during – in riparian, mesquite grassland, and Chihuahuan desert-scrub communities in the NCA. The density of herbaceous vegetation increased four- to six-fold in riparian and mesquite grassland communities. On short-term time scales (i.e,, ;; 5 years), riparian vegetation may be expected to reflect the impact of a flood via two processes: (1) the destruction of pre-existing vegetation by the flood and (2) the colonization by new vegetation of substrate either cleared or deposited. by. the flood.

However, its riparian forest is threatened by diminishing groundwater and surface water inputs, due to either changes in watershed characteristics such as changes in riparian and upland vegetation, or human activities such as regional groundwater.

Discharge as transpiration by phreatophytes along the Mojave River and as bare-soil evaporation in the river channel was simulated using the Evapotranspiration (EVT) package (McDonald and Harbaugh, ).

Vegetation clearing for agricultural development and mining for gold and gravel have greatly reduced the extent of floodplain riparian forests. The Cauvery river basin of South India has a large phyto-floristic wealth, rightfully enough to constitute a separate phyto-geographic unit.

Increase in the anthropogenic pressures within the river basin and surrounding landscapes have persistently stressed the riparian ecosystem structure adversely, besides altering its composition.

Root excavation studies of Populus trees along the Mojave River in southern California (Lines, ) revealed a greater percentage (between 10 and 50%) of roots in the upper meter of soil at sites where groundwater levels were more than 3 m in depth, compared to sites where groundwater was only m deep.

Taken together, these data suggest. The findings from the model simulations of bank retreat show that the variations in bank material properties and riparian vegetation greatly contribute to rates of erosion and the style of bank failure, and suggest that hydrologic variability is an important factor influencing the erodibility of cohesive banks.

The Green Corridor in the lower reaches of Tarim River in northwestern China has an extreme hot and dry climate.
