A new review “Improving river hydromorphological assessment through better integration of riparian vegetation”

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



The COST CONVERGES Action aims to establish a baseline in the state of knowledge regarding riparian vegetation and ecosystems. It is a network created to coordinate research efforts, to contribute to knowledge conversion between countries and actors (scientists, managers, policy makers, etc.) and to promote practitioners research interests in the scientific community.
