Abstract

Hydroelectric development has brought about changes in many streams below dams, adding further to the disturbance caused earlier by construction of canals and weirs for navigation (Tourenq et al., 1978). The structure and function of these ecosystems stem directly from man’s modifications of the water flow. The consequences to hydrobiology are being studied on several rivers in southwest France.
