Title: Applying a hydrogeomorphic channel classification to understand spatial patterns in riparian vegetation

Abstract

Here, we compared perennial riparian plant community composition among five a priori hydrogeomorphic channel types at 86 stream reaches in arid ephemeral watersheds. Floristic differences among channel types were assessed using PERMANOVA. GLM were used to identify species and functional groups whose abundance differed among channel types. Abiotic drivers of compositional differences were identified through correlations among biotic and abiotic matrices.
