Key features of the case study
The restoration project in the Czech Republic, investigated in REFORM and coded as CZ_R2, is situated at the river Morava (Danube water basin). At this point the upper catchment measures about 2305 km². The mean discharge near the site is 17.7 m³/s. In this section the Morava is a 7th order stream and is assigned to the fish region Epipotamal.
Along a relatively short river reach (220 m) bank protection was removed by floods in 1997. In comparison with the still regulated channel, the restored section is characterized by higher diversity of bank habitats, by ocurrence of gravel bars and side pools. The upstream river segment is characterized by hydromorphologicaly valuable structures (meandering channel connected with floodplain and containing large woody debris).
