The ECODYN model is a dynamic model to predict developments in the Common Meuse river system. The model incorporates our understanding of zone and patch structure of vegetation in the river system, governed by flood timing, power and frequency. With these interactions and relationships, a model is build that projects biotic processes over the river system through space and time. With the integration of research results from vegetation succession, forest development and impact of grazing regime at local and regional scale level, a sound modelling approach at ecotope level (scale 1:5000 – 1: 25000) for the river reach was possible. In this article constraints of the model, input data formats and levels and predictive power of the output are described. The modelling results for the Common Meuse restoration project are shown.
