Temporary streams in temperate zones: recognizing, monitoring and restoring transitional aquatic-terrestrial ecosystems

Article English OPEN
Stubbington, Rachel ; England, Judy ; Wood, Paul J. ; Sefton, Catherine E.M. (2017)

Temporary streams are defined by periodic flow cessation, and may experience partial or complete loss of surface water. The ecology and hydrology of these transitional aquatic-terrestrial ecosystems have received unprecedented attention in recent years. Research has foc... View more
