Description :
The AA. discuss the role of Large Woody Debris, LWD, in the development of montane riparian forests and present a conceptual model of this biogeomorphic process. Riparian forests are shown to be significant in the development of channel morphology through the stabilization of active floodplains and as sources of large woody debris. The focus of the examples are montane river networks of the Pacific Northwest, USA.
