Linkages between flow regime, biota, and ecosystem processes: Implications for river restoration

River restoration guided by research

Human activities have alytered the flow regimes of many Eatrh's rivers, with negative impacts on biodiversity, water quality, and ecological processes. In a Review, Palmer and Ruhi explain how restoration designs now attemp tp mimic ecological important aspects of natural flow regimes, guided by insights into how variations in flow affect biota and ecosystem processes. To be succesful, such efforts must go beyond accounting for flood pulses to restore natural flow variability and achieve hydrological connectivity bewteen a river and its surroundings.
