A floristic study of the riparian vegetation in the rivers Sabinas and San Rodrigo of northern Coahuila, Mexico, is presented. The area was explored and the botanical material herborized and deposited at the ANSM herbarium. A total of 70 families, 193 genera and 243 species were found. The trees in the flora are 9% of all the species, the shrubs 11%, the vines 6%, the aquatic and subaquatic herbs 21.4% and the terrestrial herbs 52.6%.

    Traditionally, stream channel planform has been viewed as a function of larger watershed and valley-scale physical variables, including valley slope, the amount of discharge, and sediment size and load. Biotic processes serve a crucial role in transforming channel planform among straight,...

    Riparian vegetation is the main source of leaves and the main energy source for low order streams. Therefore, changes in its composition affect the structure and processes in streams. We studied the contribution of the riparian vegetation by analysing the annual input of litter in deforested and...

    Riparian vegetation is closely connected to stream food webs through input of leaf detritus as a primary energy supply, and therefore, any alteration of plant diversity may influence aquatic ecosystem functioning. We measured leaf litter breakdown rate and associated biological parameters in...

    Abstract Low current velocities, high nutrient levels, the lack of riparian forest vegetation, and the development of dense and rich macrophyte communities characterize Pampean streams. The objective of this study was to describe the main physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of a...

    Headwater streams are key sites of nutrient and organic matter processing and retention, but little is known about temporal variability in gross primary production (GPP) and ecosystem respiration (ER) rates as a result of the short duration of most metabolism measurements in lotic ecosystems. We...

    Arid land and riparian plants were irrigated with a liquid wastewater stream (centrate) from biosolids production at a municipal sewage treatment facility. Centrate containing approximately 1000 mg/l ammonia nitrogen was diluted with Tucson city tap water to provide treatments of 2.5, 5, 10, 25,...
