Abstract

Decline of the willow flycatcher (a riparian bird) population prompted the Federal government to declare the species endangered, triggering a major recovery effort : management and improvement of the riparian habitat of the bird population. Fluvial hydrology and geomorphology play an important role in understanding the dynamics of the present bird population and in designing a recovery plan. The installation and operation of dams are the most important causes of hydro-geomorphic and ecological change in the region, so that management of these structures offers primary opportunities to improve the physical and biological conditions for the endangered species
