Classification can be used for increased understanding of systems and for improved relations of people with their environments. This report offers a rationale for developing such a classification system for watershed management. A hierarchical classification is developed that is based on the potentials and environments of systems, especially on the capacities of watersheds and streams to remain in desirable states over relatively long times and to return to desirable states over relatively short times. The suggested approach is to classify headwater streams by using extant knowledge of biogeoclimatic regions, watershed environments, stream order, and the morphological capacities of stream beds.
