Abstract

Timing and causes of the present-day channel downcutting of Carpathian tributaries to the Vistula River are exemplified by a case study of the Raba River. This gravel-bed stream is characterized by great variability of water stage and discharge. Lowering of ground-water levels on the valley floor, impoverishment of plant and animal communities of riverside biotopes are some of environmental effects of channel downcutting
