Excellent research paper on braided rivers as the ‘ecological nexus’ of regional biodiversity; they are much richer biologically than ‘normal’ rivers, and should be regarded holistically, ie cross-disciplinary.
“To be effective, conservation efforts in glaciated mountain landscapes intended to benefit the widest variety of organisms need a paradigm shift that has gravel-bed rivers and their floodplains as the central focus and that prioritizes the maintenance or restoration of the intact structure and processes of these critically important systems throughout their length and breadth.”
