Abstract

Biological methods, fire, herbicides, and mechanical methods have all been studied in an effort to determine appropriate ways of manipulating arid land vegetation for improvement of wildlife habitat, streamflow and water yield, increasing forage for livestock, and enhancing recreational benefits and scenic diversity. Because water is ultimately essential for all of these uses, and because of an increasing concern over the availability of water for human consumption, augmentation of water yield has been a significant part of many of these studies.
