3506 Ecological Reconstruction Works– Vlascuta Lake Description of the project Ecological Restoration of Vlascuta Lake, Romania
3517 Ecological restoration in Czech Republic The main objectives of the mire restoration programme were: (i)restoration of natural (or near-natural) mire hydrology; (ii) enhancement of peat-forming vegetation and processes, (iii) conservation of natural mire biodiversity; and (iv) involvement of the public into local mire conservation. Regarding hydrology, the aim of the restoration was to raise the water table to a natural (pre-drainage) level, decrease the /uctuations, and retain su1cient water in the mires especially during the driest periods.

3515 Ecological Restoration of Mata-Radeanu Complex The Lower Prut Floodplain Natural Park is the entrance of the Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve. It lies on the flyway route of hundreds of migratory birds. The ecological importance of the park has been recognised at national as well as international levels.The project objective is to improve the conservation status of 13 priority and more than 50 non-priority bird species listed in the Birds Directive and present in the Lower Prut Floodplain Natural Park. A main aim is to resolve the environmental problems caused by human activities such as agriculture, pasturage, fishery and tourism in and around the Park. To deal with the degradation of hydrological structures, the project also aims to re-establish the ecological balance of the lakes, including improvement of the water level and its maintenance. The results of the project are linked by the designation of Mata – Radeanu Complex as Special Protected Area NATURA 2000 within The Lower Prut Floodplain Natural Park. Through the ecological restoration works at Mata – Radeanu Complex, the water level is maintained so the habitats are protected as in drought period so in the floods ones.

3304 Ecological Restoration Project "Ciobarciu-Costuleni" (Iasi-Romania): Monitoring of the Birds' Fauna Evolution The study is the results of a birds' monitoring program started during the spring of the year 2007 and that is going on, in order to propose this new wetland for a protected status in the national Natura 2000 network.

3268 Ecosystem Restoration Case Study Template In Matsalu National Park there is a former coastal meadow site (Naturea 2000 and Ramsar site) next to a big Salmi coastal meadow with many priority species. On the site the old non-functioning small ditches were closed and scraped to restore the wetland hydrology and breeding and feeding grounds for waders and amphibians. Before the restoration works the area was used mainly for bovine grazing and the restoration did not change the conditions for that. However, due to the activities drinking water will be better available for the cattle. Restoration of Coastal Meadows in Matsalu, Estonia

3362 Effect of land development and forest management on hydrologic response in southeastern coastal wetlands: a review Land development activities such as agriculture, clear cutting, peat mining, and the planting of forest plantations on wetlands can affect the hydrologic behavior of these ecosystems by affecting their water storage and release patterns on the landscape. The effects of these development activities on hydrologic fluxes in peatlands (Typic Medisaprists) were compared to the effects of forest management practices in North Carolina using a field-tested hydrologic simulation model (DRAINMOD). Simulations revealed that natural peat-based (Histosol) pocosin systems lose 66% (80 cm) of the 123 cm of average annual rainfall by evapo-transpiration (ET) and 34% (42 cm/yr) via annual runoff. Annual runoff values were 63 cm/yr for peat mining areas, 48 cm/yr for cleared peatlands, 46 cm/yr for peatlands converted to agriculture and 34 cm/yr for pine plantations, once the forest canopy is closed. Thus, these wetland alterations, except for forestry, significantly increased runoff and decreased ET compared to the natural ecosystem. Forest pine plantation management decreased runoff and increased ET. A case study of the effects of forest management practices was reviewed for a 15-year-old drained loblolly pine plantation growing on fine sandy loam soils (Thermic Typic umbraquults) in the coastal plains of North Carolina. Forestry activities such as thinning (i.e., reduced leaf area index by 50%) decreased ET and canopy interception and nearly doubled drainage loss (38 cm/yr to 60 cm/yr). Commonly applied forest practices, such as drainage, increased the average number of flow events with flows > 5 mm/day to 86 days per year from 26 days per year under natural conditions.

3443 Effect of meander restoration on macroinvertebratebiodiversity: the case of the Borová stream(Blanskí½ Les, Czech Republic) This study brings a view on the effects of restoration of a formerly channelized small submontane stream situated in the Blanský Les Protected Landscape Area (South Bohemia, Czech Republic) on macroinvertebrate assemblages as an indicator group. The restoration project was carried out during two stages (1998 and 2000). It consisted of excavating a new channel to restore the historic meandering pattern. The evaluation of this project is primarily based on the comparison of composition between pre-restoration (1995) and post-restoration (2000–2003) macroinvertebrate samples focusing on species richness, species composition, and representation of rare Ephemeroptera and Plecoptera species. The analyses showed a substantial increase in species richness that was especially prominent shortly after the restoration intervention. This increase was not only due to the creation of lentic habitats, but was even observed at every single sampling site of the stream. The DCA ordination of species composition of the pre- and post-restoration sites indicated a considerable increase in the between-site diversity. This was apparently caused mainly by the establishing of lentic habitats, whereas diversity of lotic sites showed only a slight increase, which was most prominent during the last year of the sampling period. The shift in the species composition was profound for lotic sites as well. Although the restoration intervention considerably increased species richness and markedly changed species composition, there was no detectable increase of rare or vulnerable Ephemeroptera and Plecoptera species.

3352 El agua en navarra La política del agua está viviendo un profundo proceso de renovación en Europa. Esta política se fundamenta en los principios de la Directiva Marco del Agua, que obliga a una nueva planificación hidrológica. Los ejes de esta planificación pretenden favorecer el buen estado de las aguas al tiempo que garantizan su disponibilidad y su uso sostenible. Navarra está adaptando sus políticas al nuevo modelo europeo de gestión y administración del agua. Avanzar hacia una gestión más sostenible del agua requiere el compromiso y la corresponsabilidad de los diferentes agentes institucionales y sociales.

3236 Etude de l'impact socio-économique de la conservation et restauration de la nature dans les Hautes Fagnes Le projet LIFE « Restauration des landes et des tourbières du Plateau des Hautes Fagnes » (LIFE 06 NAT/B/000091) a pour objectif la restauration d’au moins 1400 hectares de landes et de tourbières sur six sites Natura2000 (9723 ha)délimités sur le Plateau des Hautes Fagnes (Région wallonne, Belgique). Initialement prévu pour une durée de 5 ans (2007 à 2011), une demande de prolongation a été introduite et acceptée par l’Europe dans le courant de l’année 2011, conduisant le projet jusqu’au 31 décembre 2012.

3227 Evaluating the Response of Biological Assemblages as Potential Indicators for Restoration Measures in an Intermittent Mediterranean River. Bioindicators are essential for detecting environmental degradation and for assessing the success of river restoration initiatives. River restoration projects require the identification of environmental and pressure gradients that affect the river system under study and the selection of suitable indicators to assess habitat quality before, during and after restoration. We assessed the response of benthic macroinvertebrates, fish, bird and macrophyte assemblages to environmental and pressure gradients [...] Natural bank stabilization and riparian buffer galleries along the Odelouca River, Portugal
