Assessment of human pressures and their hydromorphological impacts on lakeshores in Europe

  title={Assessment of human pressures and their hydromorphological impacts on lakeshores in Europe},
  author={Wolfgang Ostendorp and Klaus Schmieder and Klaus D. J{\"o}hnk},
Europe has a large number of lakes, many of them lie in densely settled areas. For instance, Germany has 1073 lakes with a surface area greater than 0.5 km2, surrounded by lakeshore habitats of appr. 11 000 km. The lakeshore habitats are of outstanding significance for biodiversity, ecosystem function as well as a variety of human uses. In this paper we give an operational definition of the lakeshore zone (i.e. the littoral zone, the shoreline and the riparian zone). We list significant human… CONTINUE READING
