Based on the relationship between temperature variation and flood dynamics, three types of floodplain rivers can be identified: temperate stochastic, temperate seasonal and tropical seasonal. The degree to which flooding occurs in phase with warm temperatures and enhanced system productivity influences selection for alternative life history strategies in aquatic organisms. In addition, regional geochemistry and temporal dynamics of disturbance and recovery of local habitats within the landscape… CONTINUE READING
