Climate change can cause loss of important ice dynamics in streams

[2015-02-16] In her thesis, Lovisa Lind shows that ice and winter floods are important natural disturbances for maintaining species-rich riparian zones along northern watercourses. If the climate becomes warmer this disturbance might be lost. This could potentially lead to a less diverse riparian zone. She defends her thesis at Umeå University on Friday 27 February.
