Thematic scope: The upcoming symposium will emphasise research related to the use and protection of water resources considering complex and large river systems. Topics, such as the structure (biological, chemical, and physical) and functioning of lotic ecosystems, will be addressed through disciplines contributing to the integrative field of river science. Amongst others, these comprise aquatic and floodplain ecology, monitoring of freshwater biodiversity, food web interactions, restoration of freshwater ecosystems, hydrologic connectivity, balancing human and ecological objectives, urban ecosystems, ecotoxicology, ecosystem management and ecosystem services.

The symposium serves as a wide platform for the exchange of ideas and experiences between science and practice. As organisers, we are eager to provide a memorable experience of your attendance at ISRS 2019. Stay up to date via our website!
