Description Headwater streams are small in size, but can be 80% of stream length. They have a high density in steep terrain and have a high biodiversity of invertebrates, amphibians and fish. However, they are very sensitive to landscape change, particularly timber harvesting in the Pacific Northwest. Timber harvesting exposes streams and results in a changed temperature environment. There are concerns that elevated headwater stream temperatures will negatively impact stream biota and have cumulative...
