Abstract

The AA. explore the relationships within topographically controlled settings within the upper, middle and lower reaches of a large, semi-natural alpine to mediterranean river. These reaches have expanding or contracting valley floors within wich the AA. show that there are more or less predictable patterns of stream power and rates of vegetation growth, reflecting water availability during dry periods and also the availability of sand and finer sediment. The AA. relate these to the pattern of island distribution that is repeated within the 3 reaches and is indicative of the engineering role of riparian trees
