Description:

The Netherlands Centre for River Studies and RIZA, the Institute for Inland Water Management and Waste Water Treatment hosted an international conference on lowland river rehabilitation (Wageningen, the Netherlands, September 29 - October 2, 2003).

The Conference theme was "Rehabilitating natural dynamics, landscapes and biodiversity in large regulated lowland rivers: opportunities and constraints, costs and benefits". A wide variety of papers dealing with lowland river rehabilitation have been selected. The main focus was on multi- and interdisciplinary papers (ecohydrology, ecomorphology etc.) that link abiotic patterns (riverine landscapes) and processes (hydro/morphodynamics, flood pulses) to biodiversity.

Multi-/interdisciplinary research is the most efficient way science can contribute to river/floodplain conservation and rehabilitation, but excellent monodisciplinary studies presenting new and significant aspects of these research areas have not been excluded. This publication gives the abstracts of the presentations at the conference.
