Multiple stable states and models of riparian vegetation succession on the Animas River, Colorado

Auteurs :
BAKER, W.L.
WALFORD, G.M.

Description :
This paper specifically examines the process of vegetation recovery following disturbance by exceptional natural floods along a river reach that is (and has been) comparatively undisturbed by human activities. It assesses a new successional model, a state-and-transition model, which recognizes the possibility of multiple stable states in vegetation, via an investigation of the influence of fluvial processes and landforms on variation in a mosaic of riparian vegetation patches of different ages on a river reach in montane southwestern Colorado.
