SciCafe: Restoring Lateral Connectivity in the Apalachicola River Floodplain: An Adaptive Management Approach

G Matt Kondolf, professor at University of California Berkeley Along most US rivers, floodplains have been cut off from their rivers by dikes, but the Apalachicola River is flanked by a largely intact forested floodplain, supporting biodiversity and ecosystem productivity. The river’s 400-mi long network of sloughs formerly supported important populations of juvenile fish and…
