The impact of hydromorphological restoration on river ecological status: a comparison of fish, benthic invertebrates, and macrophytes

  author={Peter Haase and Daniel Hering and Sonja C J{\"a}hnig and Armin W. Lorenz and Andrea Sundermann},
The European Water Framework Directive (WFD) has led to an increase in hydromorphological restoration attempts in European rivers, but data on the ecological responses of rivers to these restoration attempts are scarce. We investigated the effects of 24 hydromorphological river restoration projects in Germany. We compared hydromorphological parameters and biological diversity of macroinvertebrates, fish, and macrophytes in restored reaches to nearby unrestored sections. We applied, for the… CONTINUE READING
