Most Pervasive and Severe Disturbances for the Central Mississippi River States

from the National Fish Habitat Partnership's 2015 Through a Fish's Eye Report


A. Pervasive disturbances: The most common disturbances based on total stream length in a given region. Top five overall most pervasive disturbances to all stream reaches, regardless of stream size and across all spatial scales (ranked highest first): Impervious surface cover Pasture and hay land use Population density Road density Low intensity urban land use Top three most pervasive disturbances to creeks (<100 km 2 watersheds) across all spatial scales : Impervious surface cover Population density Road density Top three most pervasive disturbances to rivers (>100 km 2 watersheds) across all spatial scales : Pasture and hay land use Upstream dam density Mine density. Top five most pervasive disturbances to creeks, specific [...]
