Flow-velocity-dependent effects of turbid water on periphyton structure and function in flowing water


Land-use change, human activities, and dam management supply highly turbid water with high flow velocity; however, little is known about its effect on river ecosystems. Here, we studied the effects of flow velocity and suspended silt concentration on periphyton structure and function using experimental channels. The effects of flow velocity on algal biomass… (More)
