  1. 1. The influence of multiscale hyporheic flow on solute transport : Implications for stream restoration enhancing nitrogen removal

    Författare :Ida Morén; Anders Wörman; Joakim Riml; Roy Haggerty; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Hyporheic exchange flow; Hydrological modeling; Solute transport; Stream restoration; Nitrogen; Power spectral analysis; Hydraulic and Hydrologic Engineering; Hydraulik och teknisk hydrologi;

    Sammanfattning : Stream water that flows into and out of streambeds is called hyporheic exchange flow (HEF).It continuously interacts with groundwater and thereby affect the water quality of local streamreaches as well as downstream recipients by providing an environment where solutes andenergy can be retained and degraded.

  2. 2. Gradients of time and complexity : understanding how riparian and instream ecosystems recover after stream restoration

    Författare :Eliza Maher Hasselquist; Christer Nilsson; Stewart Rood; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; bioassessment; biodiversity; boreal; bryophyte; chronosequence; complexity; diatom; geomorphology; habitat heterogeneity; hydromorphological; macroinvertebrate; macrophyte; nitrogen cycling; river restoration; riparian buffer; stable isotopes; succession; Sweden; Environmental Science; miljövetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Why evaluations of the ecological outcomes of stream and river restoration have largely reported inconclusive or negative results has been the subject of much debate over the last decade or more. Understanding the reasons behind the lack of positive results is important for bettering future restoration efforts and setting realistic expectations for restoration outcomes. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Modeling Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) and brown trout (Salmo trutta) responses to river habitat alteration

    Författare :Kristine Lund Bjørnås; John Piccolo; Olle Calles; Steven F. Railsback; Leif Asbjørn Vøllestad; Karlstads universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ecohydraulics; Restoration; Natural resource management; Biology; Biologi;

    Sammanfattning : Half the world’s river volume is affected by flow alterations and/or fragmentation, a figure that is likely to increase with the current global surge in hydropower development. At the same time, freshwater biodiversity is in rapid decline. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Grow with the flow : Hydrological controls of riparian vegetation in boreal stream networks

    Författare :Lenka Kuglerová; Roland Jansson; Hjalmar Laudon; Birgitta Malm-Renöfält; John Stella; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; boreal forest; channelization; groundwater; Krycklan catchment; liverworts; mosses; riparian buffers; riparian vegetation; river restoration; species richness; stream network; stream size; vascular plants;

    Sammanfattning : What drives species diversity across landscapes is one of the most fundamental questions in ecology. Further, understanding the mechanisms underlying species diversity patterns is important not only for forming and challenging ecological theories but also essential for appropriate landscape management and effective nature conservation.

  5. 5. Ice, wood and rocks : regulating elements in riverine ecosystems

    Författare :Johanna Engström; Christer Nilsson; Roland Jansson; James Helfield; Tenna Riis; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :riparian zone; timber floating; river restoration; cut-off side channels; hydrochory; large wood; anchor ice; fish;

    Sammanfattning : Riparian ecosystems are of great importance in the landscape, connecting landscape elements longitudinally and laterally and often encompassing sharp environmental gradients in ecological processes and communities. They are influenced by fluvial disturbances such as flooding, erosion and sediment deposition, which create dynamic and spatially heterogeneous habitats that support a high diversity of species.
