An extension of the flood pulse concept.
The flood pulse concept of Junk, Bayley and Sparks is a major contribution to our understanding of river–floodplain interactions and has become an important paradigm in lotic ecology. The concept isExpand

A landscape perspective of surface-subsurface hydrological exchanges in river corridors
1.  River corridors can be visualised as a three-dimensional mosaic of surface–subsurface exchange patches over multiple spatial scales. Along major flow paths, surface water downwells into theExpand

Oxygen supply and the adaptations of animals in groundwater
1. The first part of this review focuses on the oxygen status of natural groundwater systems (mainly porous aquifers) and hyporheic zones of streams. The second part examines the sensitivity ofExpand

Thermal patterns in the surface waters of a glacial river corridor (Val Roseg, Switzerland)
SUMMARY 1. We examined the thermal patterns of the surface waters in the catchment of the Roseg River, which is fed by the meltwaters of two valley glaciers. One of the glaciers has a lake at itsExpand

The influence of river-catchment hydrological interactions on discharge patterns, lotic ecosystem size, and surface water chemistry were investigated in a glacial floodplain of the Swiss Alps (ValExpand

Understanding natural patterns and processes in river corridors as the basis for effective river restoration
An Erratum has been published for this article in Regulated Rivers: Research and Management 17 (6) 2001, 311–323. Running water ecology is a young science, the conceptual foundations of which wereExpand

Flood-pulse and riverscape dynamics in a braided glacial river.
River ecosystems are increasingly viewed as dynamic riverscapes; their extent, composition, and configuration vary in response to the pulsing of discharge. Although compositional and configurationalExpand

Testing dispersal and cryptic diversity in a widely distributed groundwater amphipod (Niphargus rhenorhodanensis).
Theories about colonization and evolution in groundwater have assumed that the fragmented structure of groundwater strongly limits dispersal. The high number of endemic and allopatric species inExpand

Response of invertebrate assemblages to increased groundwater recharge rates in a phreatic aquifer
Abstract Low organic matter supply and reduced spatiotemporal heterogeneity severely constrain biodiversity in groundwater. At the aquifer scale, spatial variation in the groundwater recharge rate isExpand

Landscape ecology: a framework for integrating pattern and process in river corridors
Investigations of European floodplain rivers demonstrate how landscape ecology can provide an effective framework to integrate pattern and process in river corridors, to examine environmentalExpand
