major claims and counter-claims made by NCD critics and practitioners. Critics allege, for example, that Rosgen teaches trainees to approach stream restoration as simple when it is not; Lave reports that Rosgen teaches restoration as doable, but not simple. Additionally, critics suggest Rosgen asserts NCD-based field measurements can be used to estimate stream evolution processes when they cannot; Lave reports that critics use similar field measurements to diagnose stream processes. A more substantive critique comes from those who suggest that NCD's goal is to restore streams to a stable or dynamic equilibrium condition when streams are inherently unstable; Lave reports that scientific consensus considers streams as unstable and NCD training needs to be brought up to date on this issue. Other claims address whether NCD is overly interventionist, whether NCD properly addresses aquatic ecosystems, and whether NCD over-relies on elusive indicators of bankfull discharge. Lave's review of NCD counter-claims provides a rich read--you can find out whether the enemy to stream restoration is the Army Corps of Engineers, whether NCD critics really have little practical experience, and why Rosgen considers critics ignorant of what is actually taught in NCD short-courses.
