Feral animals and livestock can damage riparian zones, banks, edge habitat and dry stream beds while accessing water and other resources. Pugging, rooting and trampling can accelerate erosion and alter instream sediment dynamics. Soil compaction can also occur along stock trails, reducing water infiltration whilst increasing run-off.
Dry stream beds provide habitat for invertebrates. These communities reflect the health of dry stream ecosystems.
