Abstract

This paper investigates associations between the viable seed bank, sediment properties and elevation on 3 erosing river banks along the lower reaches of the River Dove, Derbyshire. Using both descriptive statistics and detrended correspondence analysis, major contrasts are found in the abundance and floristic composition of the viable seed bank between the bank top, bank face and bank toe and between the 3 study sites. The implications of these observations for understanding the role of fluvial processes in riparian seed bank dynamics and their implications for riparian management are discussed
