The case studies presented below are a compilation of examples of river restoration and rehabilitation projects describing the effect that given measures may have on the hydromorphology and ecology of different water bodies. These examples are intended to provide practitioners with valuable information about the applicability of different measures.

REFORM river restoration field research sites
One of the aims in REFORM was to analyze the effects of restoration measures throughout Europe (click here for more info). Special field study sites were selected for this. Each study site was targeted with the same array of methods, covering floodplain hydromorphology, river hydromorphology, stable isotopes (N and C), riparian vegetation, macrophytes, benthic invertebrates and fish. The REFORM sites are part of the wiki, and links to their wiki pages are given in the table below.
River restoration case studies
Every case study has a separate wiki-page, on this page you find:
- A factsheet summarizes the basic information about the project.
- A wiki page contains the factsheet, a google map indicating the location of the project, and a free-text section where a more detailed description of the project can be given.
- Extra background information can be uploaded at the bottom of the wiki page. This can be in the form of reports in their original language or links to other sources of information.
Use the information with caution: The REFORM consortium does not take responsibility for the veracity and completeness of the information presented here, and is not liable for the use that third parties may give to it. Practitioners are urged to review the information critically, duly considering the original sources and the intrinsic differences between study sites which may affect the transferability of results.
