Abstract: Rivers and streams cannot be viewed without the vegetation growing in and alongside it. The riverine ecosystem is strongly organized by the presence of plants in interaction with flow and morphological processes. This creates challenges for water management, as a profound knowledge of these interactions is needed when management decisions must be made. At the same time other aspects of water management, such as societal-economic demands, might compromise the depth at which these processes can be studied and incorporated in the daily management of these systems.
