Abstract
  • This Master's Degree project is intended to document historical ecological conditions and land use histories during the past 150 years for selected Oregon watersheds and tidal wetland sites. The sites are the subject of current research into the ability of tidal wetlands to provide rearing habitat and prey for juvenile salmonids. Six reference marshes were selected for an ongoing study by Bottom, Jones, Simenstad, and others into the use of tidal wetlands by juvenile salmonids (Gray et al. 2002, Comwell et al. 2001). Their project compares upper and lower estuary wetlands on three Oregon coastal river systems: the Alsea, the Siuslaw, and the Yaquina. These sites were chosen because they represent relatively undisturbed remaining tidal wetlands and are similar in vegetation and landscape position. In addition, the sites met the comparative and logistical needs for the study.
