Abstract

Often overlooked and underfunded, ecological monitoring is an essential component of stream-restoration work. It helps practitioners to identify successful restoration practices, detect ineffective ones, and adjust their adaptive-management activities to improve efficacy (Bernhardt and Palmer 2011). Monitoring, along with research and modeling, are the three legs of the scientific stool that support ecosystem restoration and management. Monitoring tells us what is happening, research tells us why and how it is happening, and modeling provides insights about what can happen under different management alternatives.
