The document is a research synthesis requested by the Forestry Work Group of the Nutrient Subcommittee of the Chesapeake Bay Program. In developing the outline for the report, the authors agreed to specifically focus on the existing Riparian Forest Buffer System (RFBS) specification developed by USDA and being used as a starting point for federal, state, and local RFBS specifications. The strategy for development of the document was to bring together researchers in this field to: (1) discuss the current state of knowledge of RFBS; (2) determine how that knowledge related to the Chesapeake Bay Watershed; and (3) reach consensus about the functions of RFBS in the Bay watershed based on that current state of knowledge.
