Merge to riparian strip?
Shouldn't this article be combined with Riparian strip?
No. Not all riparian strips or riparian buffers are forested. You can have scrubs, grasses or unfortunately bare soil in riparian strips. --Ray 16:17, 13 March 2006 (UTC)
non flowing water bodies
upon what authority does riparian refer to "non-flowing" bodies of water. i have only seen it used to denote the fringe of a flowing water body. Anlace 05:42, 6 April 2006 (UTC)

Atlantic coastal salt marsh is not a riparian forest
I like the article but I wonder why the uppermost photo (Atlantic salt marsh) is attached here as it has nothing in common with a riparian forest. In my view the photo would be helpful in an article on salt marshes, e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salt_marsh Hana Cizkova 19:01, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
