Sector boundaries are usually related to a major change in the flow regime, water chemistry and/or channel form. They usually show predictable changes with increasing distance from source, from small upland relatively unmanaged sectors to lowland regions that may be intensively managed. Each sector type is composed of a series of reaches which are lengths of river within which there is a uniformity of local habitat features. Reach boundaries may relate to localized features such as weirs, which create ponded reaches upstream and faster-flowing gravel reaches downstream.

It is hoped that funding organizations will encourage the development of studies which will help build knowledge of habitat/biota interactions in a systematic way. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS I am grateful to my colleagues at the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology for providing information and useful discussions, and to Marty Gurtz (US Geological Survey) and the Environment Agency (UK) for supplying relevant reports. This work was partly funded by the Natural Environment Research Council. , Roux, A. , Reygrobellet, J.

Its importance is due to an associated large energy dissipation and to considerable variation in all of the hydraulic properties which are produced (in particular, of the water depth and local velocity). ), whereas transition from fast to slow flow is only possible through the above mentioned phenomenon. The latter can be easily observed in natural mountain watercourses and is frequently used by engineers as an energy dissipator. It shows itself in different shapes according to the Froude number of the upstream current.
