Abstract

The complex environmental research (hydrology, vegetation, soils and ground water) has been carried out in nature reserves, located on the Danube banks within the zone of broad-leaved forests in Germany. Under comparison were terrestrial ecosystems along the regulated and natural rivers. It was established that the weirs, dams with low head of water and small artificial reservoirs affects upon the vegetation and soils of floodplains to be manifested some decades later. A comprehensive analysis of trends in mean annual water level, water flow and the precipitation for the long period revealed the significant influence of natural long-term variability of the water content on the vegetation dynamics in floodplains. The methods, suggested by the authors made possible to assess the after-effects upon floodplain ecosystems due to changes in the river flow regime caused by different hydrotechnical constructions.
