While somewhat dated, the Proceedings from the May 1998 Salmon in the City Conference in Mt Vernon, Washington is an excellent resource for those interested in the science of urban salmon recovery. The proceedings summarize the work of scientists and engineers (including Portland’s own Tom Liptan from BES) who have studied the impacts of urbanization to watersheds for nearly two decades.
