Damming and regulating the flow of rivers is a widespread issue and can have a significant impact on resident biota. The Tongariro River, central North Island, New Zealand, has a flow regime that is regulated by two hydroelectric dams along its length, and it has been suggested that ‘flushing flows’ would assist benthic communities by removing ‘nuisance’ periphyton growth forms that typically occur in autumn. We assessed whether (i) damming has altered periphyton and macroinvertebrate…

LONG‐TERM DYNAMICS OF AN INVERTEBRATE ASSEMBLAGE DOWNSTREAM FROM A LARGE DAM

A century of hydrologic data (1895–1999) and 50 yr of aquatic macroinvertebrate assemblage data (1947–1999) were examined for two tailwater reaches of the Green River downstream from Flaming Gorge

Downstream Ecological Effects of Dams: A geomorphic perspective

To illustrate how subtle geomorphological adjustments may profoundly influence the ecological relationships downstream from dames, three case studies are presented and a geomorphically based approach for assessing and possibly mitigating some of the environmental effects of dams by tailoring dam designed and operation is outlined.

Abstract Ecological responses to dam construction are poorly understood, especially for downstream benthic algal communities. We examined the responses of benthic algal communities in downstream

Dam Removal: Challenges and Opportunities for Ecological Research and River Restoration

Restoration is defined broadly as an effort to compensate for the negative effects of human activities on ecological systems by facilitating the establishment of natural components and regenerative processes, although it is acknowledged that these efforts rarely eliminate all human impacts.

This literature review has focused this literature review around four key principles to highlight the important mechanisms that link hydrology and aquatic biodiversity and to illustrate the consequent impacts of altered flow regimes.

There is growing recognition by resource managers on the importance of the natural flow regime in maintaining river integrity downstream of large dams. Historically, artificial floods from reservoirs
