  • Design of a National River Health Assessment Program for China 

    Gippel, Chris; Zhang, Yuan; Qu, X.D.; Bond, N.; Kong, W.J.; Leigh, Catherine; Catford, J.; Speed, R.; Meng, Wei (Decision Making in Water Resources Policy and Management, 2017)
    Recent developments in water law, policy, and community attitudes in China have created the need for consistent nationwide assessments of river health. River health assessments have been undertaken in various catchments ...

  • Food webs and trophic interactions in intermittent rivers and ephemeral streams 

    McIntosh, Angus R.; Leigh, Catherine; Boersma, Kate S.; McHugh, Peter A.; Febria, Catherine M.; García-Berthou, Emili (Intermittent Rivers and Ephemeral Streams: Ecology and Management, 2017)
    The contraction of aquatic, and expansion of terrestrial, habitats in association with flow cessation and drying in intermittent rivers and ephemeral streams (IRES) fundamentally affect interactions among IRES organisms. ...

  • Genetic, evolutionary and biogeographical processes in intermittent rivers and ephemeral streams 

    Bonada, Nuria; Carlson, Stephanie M.; Datry, Thibault; Finn, Debra S.; Leigh, Catherine; Lytle, David A.; T. Monaghan, Michael; Tedesco, Pablo A. (Intermittent Rivers and Ephemeral Streams: Ecology and Management, 2017)
    Intermittent rivers and ephemeral streams (IRES) are strong drivers of evolution because they experience spatially variable and recurrent disturbances and succession processes. Alternating wet and dry phases exert strong ...

  • The biota of intermittent rivers and Ephemeral Streams: Aquatic invertebrates 

    Stubbington, Rachel; Bogan, Michael T.; Bonada, Nuria; Boulton, Andrew J.; Datry, Thibault; Leigh, Catherine; Vorste, Ross Vander (Intermittent Rivers and Ephemeral Streams: Ecology and Management, 2017)
    Intermittent rivers and ephemeral streams (IRES) support diverse and sometimes distinctive aquatic invertebrate communities. Although flow intermittence has been linked to reduced taxa richness, the highly variable ...

  • Flow regimes in Intermittent Rivers and Ephemeral Streams 

    Costigan, Katie H.; Kennard, Mark; Leigh, Catherine; Sauquet, Eric; Datry, Thibault; Boulton, Andrew J. (Intermittent Rivers and Ephemeral Streams: Ecology and Management, 2017)
    The defining feature of all intermittent rivers and ephemeral streams (hereafter, IRES) is that they cease flow at some time. Many IRES dry to isolated pools but flow often continues through the hyporheic sediments below ...
