Topic Habitat: Canopy in Arroyo Corte Madera Tribs 2003
Caption:  The Chart shows canopy closure from a habitat typing survey in tributaries to Arroyo Corte Madera del Presido in 2003. The tributaries were surveyed in three reaches moving upstream. Warner Creek had the largest percentage of dry channel at 31%. Cascade Creek was dominated by coniferous canopy with 67%. Lack of canopy can contribute to stream warming. CDFG stream survey reports state, "In general, revegetation projects are considered when canopy density is less than 80%." See Info Links for more information.
