Across the southern Appalachian Mountains this threat is aggravated by steep terrain and the rapid accumulation of rainfall in narrow valleys and gorges.

Introduction [2] Watershed hydrology can be altered by changes in land use and land cover (LULC). A number of studies have shown that timber harvest [Hornbeck et al., ], urbanization [Hollis, ; Burges et al., ; Wissmar et al., ], changes in agricultural management [Potter, ; Allan et al., ] and surface mining [Negley and Eshleman, ] can shift the.

About this Book This new edition is a major revision of the popular introductory reference on hydrology and watershed management principles, methods, and applications. The book's content and scope have been improved and condensed, with updated chapters on the management of forest, woodland, rangeland, agricultural urban, and mixed land use.

Biodiversity: Central Appalachian Plant Distributions and Forest Types Occurrences of plant species and forest types in the Central Appalachians are related to elevation, soil acidity and moisture content.

Simple observations and survey methods are featured. Time rate of change (kinetic) and equilibrium criteria for forest succession are discussed.
