Heede, Burchard H. 1980. Stream dynamics: An overview for land managers. Gen. Tech. Rep. RM-72 Fort Collins, CO: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Forest and Range Experiment Station. 26 p.

Concepts of stream dynamics are demonstrated through discussion of processes and process indicators; theory is included only where helpful to explain concepts. Present knowledge allows only qualitative prediction of stream behavior. However, such predictions show how management actions will affect the stream and its environment.

Keywords: stream dynamics, fluvial processes, process indicators
