Description A spatially explicit watershed and riparian habitat model was developed for quantifying site characteristics of riparian habitats of the lower Cedar River, Washington. The spatial complexity and distribution of combined habitat and anthropogenic landscape features were used to define habitat "indices" of the relative quality of riparian habitats. Patches of contiguous grid cells were measured in terms of their locations, sizes, and relative degree of fragmentation to estimate riparian... Thesis (Ph.D.)--University of Washington, 2013
