This paper reviews and synthesizes the relevance of riparian vegetation for river hydromorphology. We also examine how riparian vegetation is considered in the WFD and how it is included in national hydromorphological protocols currently in use. We argue that the hydromorphological context of the WFD should be revisited and offer guidance to integrate riparian vegetation in river hydromorphological monitoring and assessment. See here
