Small and impoverished regional species pools constrain colonisation of restored river reaches by fishes
Summary 1. Using an extensive data set from 18 river restoration projects in the lower mountain ranges of Germany and 5462 river reaches in their surroundings, we estimated the spatial extent ofExpand

Contrasting metacommunity structure and beta diversity in an aquatic‐floodplain system
Habitat connectivity and dispersal interact to structure metacommunities, but few studies have examined these patterns jointly for organisms across the aquatic-terrestrial ecotone. We assessedExpand

River restoration success depends on the species pool of the immediate surroundings.
Previous studies evaluating the success of river restorations have rarely found any consistent effects on benthic invertebrate assemblages. In this study, we analyzed data from 24 river restorationExpand

Density-dependent relationship between Chaetogaster limnaei limnaei (Oligochaeta) and the freshwater snail Physa acuta (Pulmonata)
Abstract. The relationship between the widespread and common oligochaete Chaetogaster limnaei limnaei (CLL) and its snail hosts is usually considered commensal or mutualistic. However, its effects onExpand

Bridging the gap between biodiversity data and policy reporting needs: An Essential Biodiversity Variables perspective
TLDR
Using Essential Biodiversity Variables (EBVs) as a tool, theory driven comparisons could be made between the biodiversity information gaps in reporting and indicator sets. Expand

Spawning site selection by Eurasian perch (Perca fluviatilis L.) in relation to temperature and wave exposure
The selection of spawning depth by Eurasian perch Perca fluviatilis was investigated in an experiment using artificial substrata in Lake Constance during the spawning season of 2007. The experimentExpand

Dispersal distance and the pool of taxa, but not barriers, determine the colonisation of restored river reaches by benthic invertebrates
Summary Restoration is an increasingly central theme in river ecology. Recent studies have highlighted the importance of the species pool in the surrounding river network for determiningExpand

Do adult and YOY fish benefit from river restoration measures
Abstract We analyzed the effects of 36 river restoration projects on fish assemblages. We expected increased reproduction in restored river reaches leading to a sustainable increase in the totalExpand

Assessing resilience in long-term ecological data sets
TLDR
In this paper the concept of resilience is discussed on the base of 13 case studies from the German branch of the International Long-Term Ecological Research Program. Expand
