Abstract
  • The Tualatin Basin landscape has undergone extensive change since the initiation of Euro-American settlement, with important consequences for basin hydrology and water quality. Changes that include the isolation of the Tualatin River from its floodplain areas, losses of important wetlands and riparian areas, and urbanization associated with population growth in the Basin have produced a landscape that is functionally different from the pre-contact landscape. These changes, though they have occurred over a 130 year period, began to be important in the late 19th and early 20th centuries when timber production and agricultural activities began. Any effective watershed management plan developed for the Basin must address these landscape changes and the loss of important landscape features such as wetlands and riparian areas.
