Biodiversity and community stability consequences of human-driven river network fragmentation
I will study the structure of river and stream networks with explicit considerations for fragmentation as a result of anthropogenic activities such as hydroelectric damming, road crossings, and water diversions. I will then relate these changes in structure to the biodiversity and the stability of that diversity in these regions.
