UCFWG Habitat Workshop
Goal: Identify key component measures of habitat diversity and coordinate field assessment efforts on the UCFR for the Summer 2021 field season.
Floodplain development and water withdrawals in the Upper Clark Fork River have led to decreased floodplain connectivity as well as riparian habitat loss, creating a lack of cover and reducing allochthonous input. State agencies, academic institutions, and restoration managers have a vested interest in assessing the current habitat composition of the UCFR. As such, multiple research thrusts have been proposed to address habitat in the UCFR during the Summer 2021 field season. The purpose of this workshop is to identify key habitat metrics to be measured at the mesoscale-level, coordinate UCFR habitat field efforts for the Summer 2021 season and determine constructive and feasible goals for morphological habitat assessment.
