USDA Forest Watershed Science Research Work Unit

The mission of the Forest Watershed Science Research Work Unit is to provide information, methods, and guidelines to implement and evaluate ecosystem management concepts, practices, and effects on water, soil, and forest resources. The Blacksburg team seeks to acquire new knowledge about factors that influence the distribution, abundance, and production of trout and other coldwater fish in the southern Appalachians and to provide the technical basis for protecting, enhancing, and restoring coldwater streams and their faunas. Current research focuses on impacts of climate change on streams habitats, habitat fragmentation by barriers to movement of aquatic organisms, riparian management, and the ecology of large wood streams.
