    Uittreksel

    Methods for defining and retrieving reference conditions for large rivers were explored with emphasis on hydromorphological and biological quality indicators. Boundary conditions for riparian zone functioning were investigated for hydromorphological and riparian forests characteristics. Critical ranges for riparian forest area, for stages of riparian forest development and for sustainable populations of Populus nigra and Salix purpurea were determined in the search for useful measures from reference conditions.
    After identification of reference conditions, a proposal for assessment and monitoring of the proposed indices is discussed for its applicability.
