Wildlife biologists and foresters have been collaborating for many years on timber sale planning, however it has only been fairly recently that fisheries biologists and foresters have started to work together.  Site level guidelines provide a basic framework for timber harvest in riparian areas, and traditional views often advocated staying out of riparian areas altogether.  Selective harvest or planting within riparian areas has the potential to improve stream habitat.  Beaver management, culvert placement, road construction and leave tree requirements can all be improved by thinking like a fisheries biologist.
