Area North Fork Garcia
Topic Habitat: Percent Canopy Type for NF Garcia 1991
Caption:  The chart above shows canopy over the North Fork Garcia River from results of a September 1991 habitat typing survey. Canopy is measured with a densiometer from the center of the stream. Data indicate 52% of habitats surveyed along the North Fork Garcia lacked shade, 44% were shaded by deciduous trees, and only 4% by conifers. This also indicates a lack of available coniferous large woody debris for recruitment to the stream. Data were collected for the Garcia River Watershed Enhancement Plan (Mendocino County RCD, 1992). See InfoLinks for more information.
