Abstract
  • Riparian areas are an integral component of fluvial ecosystems. The management of Oregon's riparian areas has come under greater scrutiny since that latest revision of the Oregon Forest Practices Act (1994). Many riparian areas lie within forested areas. Riparian management issues such as anadromous fish population decline and large woody debris insertion and removal have fueled the debate over proper management in recent decades. In New Zealand, conversely, there has been little concern about the influence of commercial timber plantations on riparian areas. The shift toward a global forest economy and increased competition of New Zealand's timber export market led the leading Radiata pine plantation companies to take the first step toward Environmental Management Systems, including voluntary best management practices in riparian areas. With this pro-active approach, New Zealand's forestry entered a new era of regulations supervised by the local authorities. To facilitate my understanding of the differences in riparian zone management between Oregon and New Zealand, I examined forest policies, management systems, and the history of management within riparian areas.
