August 20, 2020

The paper “Streamflow regulation effects in the Mediterranean rivers: How far and to what extent are aquatic and riparian communities affected?” was published on Science of the Total Environment journal ( The study focuses on how different plant groups (macrophytes, bryophytes, and riparian woody vegetation) respond to hydrological alterations along the river and across the riparian zone downstream of dams.
