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

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Univeristy

    Author : Lenka Kuglerová; Umeå universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : 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;

    Abstract : 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.

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

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Eliza Maher Hasselquist; Umeå universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : 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;

    Abstract : 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. READ MORE

  5. 5. Breaking the ice effects of ice formation and winter floods on vegetation along streams

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Lovisa Lind; Umeå universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; anchor ice; climate change; in-stream; riparian; river ice; streams; vegetation;

    Abstract : Streams in cold regions are characterized by unique hydrological processes that control flow regime and water levels. One of the most important processes is the formation, growth and melting of different types of ice in and around the stream channel during winter. READ MORE
