The Alsea Basin Bibliography focuses on the entire Alsea River Basin, from the mouth of the estuary to the foothills of the Coast Range.  This enlarged coverage acknowledges the importance of the Alsea Watershed Study (1959-1974), an early and important long-term research project about the effects of logging on salmonid fisheries.  The bibliography also includes works from a follow-up investigation, the Alsea Watershed Study Revisited (2008-2016).  The Alsea Basin Bibliography attempts to identify research on the physical and biological aspects of the Alsea River and estuary, with an emphasis on fisheries and natural resources. The period covered extends from Theodore Talbot's trip through the region in 1849 up to the present date.   We continue to add to the bibliography as items are found or brought to our attention. Please send us citations you believe should be included.

Use the search box for title and keyword searches. To search for an exact phrase, put it in quotes. Ex.: Salmon Creek picks up the many records that contain both words 'salmon' and 'creek.'  Searching by "Salmon Creek" picks up only those records that contain the phrase 'Salmon Creek.' For other keyword searching,  “Historical” is used instead of "history," in order not to confuse history references with life history information about organisms. “Archeology” is preferred over “archaeology.”
