The Tagliamento river system: a model ecosystem of European importance
The Fiume Tagliamento river system constitutes an invaluable resource not only as a reference site for the Alps, but as a model ecosystem for large European rivers.
It is critical to understand the functional roles of these endangered attributes in order to effectively engage in river conservation and management programmes.
The Tagliamento River in Italy offers the rare opportunity to investigate natural processes at a scale that can be studied almost nowhere else in Europe.
