- ... Approximately 15% of the world's river flow is regulated, but evidence for the impacts of regulation on macroinvertebrate communities remains contradictory. Sound understanding of this topic is now required to meet legislative targets (e.g. EU Water Framework Directive good ecological potential). In the UK, research has either been undertaken at large (national) or small (reach) scales, and typica ...

- ... The majority of the world's large river systems is affected by dams. The influences of unnatural regimes induced by flow management are wide‐ranging from both biotic and abiotic standpoints. However, many of these effects are not evident over short (1–2 years) periods (e.g. impacts of annual flow variation). This study examines the long‐term effects of annual flow variation on the macroinvertebrat ...
