Streams in the Urban Landscape

  title={Streams in the Urban Landscape},
  author={Michael J. Paul and Judy L. Meyer},
■ Abstract The world’s population is concentrated in urban areas. This change in demography has brought landscape transformations that have a number of documented effects on stream ecosystems. The most consistent and pervasive effect is an increase in impervious surface cover within urban catchments, which alters the hydrology and geomorphology of streams. This results in predictable changes in stream habitat. In addition to imperviousness, runoff from urbanized surfaces as well as municipal… CONTINUE READING
