Description :
The AA. surveyed 20 stream reaches in Northern California with riparian corridors dominated by broadleaved trees and found that a high proportion of wood jams had key pieces that were still living. Living wood was capable of serving as a key piece for a wood jam at a smaller size than dead wood and had a greater influence on channel morphology. Due to living wood, the range of tree species and sizes that provide stable and functional in-stream large wood may be broader than previously described.
