Abstract

Attempts to combine hydrology and ecology in classifying rivers and in setting flow objectives to favour biota are reviewed, together with integrated approaches to river management that aim to promote ecological quality. A significant scale disparity is noted between the disciplines, hydrology being studied at catchment, subcatchment and reach scales, and biology generally at local level. The approach with most appeal for general risk assessment is based on the concept of hydrological alteration. Finally, the AA. consider the potential of these methods as tools for hydrological risk assessment in European Water Framework Directive implementation
