The role of vegetation in riparian function

The Role of Vegetation inRiparian Function

  • Protect banks

  • Stabilize channels

  • Dissipate energy:

    • Slow velocity

      • Drop sediment

        • Stabilize sediment

          • Build floodplain


Build floodplain

Build Floodplain:

  • Increase water storage capacity (sponge)

  • Increase recharge

  • Absorb floodwater

  • Prolonged flow
