Research

The perception of large rivers systems is sometimes restricted to their main channel. However waterbodies (e.g. backwaters) in the floodplain are also important as they present interesting ecological characteristics. Hydrologic conditions are largely accepted to drive ecological conditions in river systems. Main channels are under constant flow control whereas backwaters fulfil the missing standing waterbody part of river systems. As consequence vegetation is believed to be almost absent from the main channel whereas it stands mostly in backwaters. Therefore backwaters offer better ecological conditions for plant growth and reproduction and are of great importance in maintaining river biological and ecological diversity.
