Description

Across all biomes, habitat fragmentation, loss and degradation are frequently cited as main causes of species decline and extinction (Bascompte and Sole, 1996; Doak, 1995; Ehrlich, 1995; Fahrig, 2002). In freshwater ecosystems, fragmentation and flow regulation have severely degraded many of the world's rivers (Revenga et al., 2000; Nilsson et al., 2005). River regulation typically results in reduced habitat heterogeneity, a loss in lateral and longitudinal connectivity (Mann, 1988; Haslam, 1990), and an altered flow regime (Lytle and Poff, 2004). The impact of these changes to the natural functioning of river systems are often manifested in reduced diversity of aquatic organisms.show more
