Abstract

Adaptive management is a heuristic approach to treating stream restoration projects as a continuous, cyclic experiment, yielding results to be incorporated into future decisions. This comprehensive assessment views failures as surprises that are valuable lessons; this information can then be used in the development or improvement of comprehensive guidelines. Monitoring evaluation and communication of results are critical; the monitoring results trigger feedback mechanisms to invoke adaptation to the newly acquired information and communication of new hypotheses, treatments, or policies. These principles were applied to a monitoring study of three urban restoration sites in the Piedmont physiographic region of Maryland.
