3449 Flood control areas as an opportunity to restore estuarine habitat. Ecological Engineering 28(1), 55-63. Intertidal areas in estuaries play a multi-functional role, from energy dissipation and mitigation of floods over provision of natural habitat to a contribution in the cycling and recycling of nutrients. Many of these intertidal areas have been claimed for urban, agricultural or industrial expansion. When considering restoration in a land-scarce environment, managed realignment is not always an option and thus other approaches need to be considered. In this paper we investigate the possibility to combine the concept of a flood control area (FCA) with nature development and the functions of intertidal areas, by use of simple sluice constructions to introduce a controlled reduced tide (CRT). Model results show the possibility to introduce acceptable tidal influence in FCAs. Nevertheless there are major differences with tidal characteristics of natural outer dike marshes: the spring-neap tidal range is strongly reduced, the tidal curve flattened. Also the relation between inundation time (IT) and inundation frequency (IF) shows strong distortion compared to the natural situation, with roughly doubled inundation times as compared with a natural outer dike marsh. This has important implications for nature and vegetation development. Further research and monitoring of test sites is necessary to conclude about the desirability of the implementation on larger scale of this concept.

3359 Foro del Agua de Navarra. Documento Técnico para la Participacion Publica en la Cuenca del Aragon. Documentacion previa para su análisis. Pamplona, marzo 2007 El objetivo de este documento es servir como base para la participación pública en torno a la gestión del agua y de sus principales problemas en la cuenca del Arga. De esta forma, se promueve el proceso de participación exigido por la Directiva Marco del Agua (2000/60) para la elaboración del Plan Hidrológico de la cuenca del Ebro, que tiene que ser aprobado en diciembre de 2009. Este plan va a suponer la revisión del plan hidrológico que se aprobó en 1998 y además, la incorporación de los requerimientos establecidos por la DMA. Por otro lado, la “estrategia para la gestióny el uso sostenible del agua en Navarra” también promueve estos procesos de participación pública, fundamentales para que el público en general y los afectados más directamente por el tema puedan participar en el proceso de la toma de decisiones.

3419 Francia Martí­nez, J. R., Durán Zuazo, V. H., & Martí­nez Raya, A. (2006). Environmental impact from mountainous olive orchards under different soil-management systems (SE Spain). Soil erosion, runoff and nutrient-loss patterns over a two-year period (1999-2000) were monitored in erosion plots on a mountainside with olive (Olea europaea cv. Picual) trees under three different types of soil management: (1) non-tillage with barley (Hordeum vulgare) strips of 4 m width (BS); (2) conventional tillage (CT); (3) non-tillage without plant strips (NT). The erosion plots, located in Lanjaron (Alpujarras) on the southern flank of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in south-eastern Spain, had 30% slope Cover Crops and No-Tillage in an Olive Grove (Andalusia, Spain)
3308 From airport to sustainable community sustainable Fornebu The refurbishment of the 340-hectare Fornebu site – Oslo’s airport until 1998 – is one of Norway’s largest and most ambitious development projects, including new housing, businesses, recreation and conservation projects. One of two landowners at Fornebu, the Norwegian state, and its organ for construction and land development, Statsbygg (Norwegian Directorate of Public Construction and Property), have been heavily involved in work on Fornebu since 1995.

3390 Good practices handbook The INTERREG IVC project WATER CoRe (Water scarcity and droughts; coordinated actions in European regions) provides an exchange platform on water scarcity and drought issues. Due to climate change effects, water scarcity is foreseen to affect the European Union citizens on ecological, economic and social issues, at local and regional level. New and coordinated strategies and policies are required, to mitigate the climate change impact on our economy and our life. Thus, the main objective of the project is the exchange of experiences and the transfer of good practices between the regions partners in the project and the improvement of topic related management standards all around Europe.

3486 Green potential of a constructed wetland with reed bed filters on a 172 ha urban project near Reims (France). Project evolution analysis A 172 ha town planning project has been developed near Reims (France) for the last five years. For one of the catchments of this area (72ha) a 15 000 m3 detention pond is being built, in a difficult hydrogeological context since ground water level may rise up to the natural ground. The characteristics of this detention pond have drastically changed along the design process: the first hypothesis were based upon a deep concrete tank, but a constructed wetland has finally been chosen. This paper deals with the constructed wetland characteristics itself on the ecological point of view (deepness, shape...). It also points the design process that allowed such an evolution, thanks to both the designer proposals and the public authority requirements Constructed wetland with reed bed filters near Reims, France

3226 Hierarchical spatial patterns and drivers of change in benthic macro invertebrate communities in an intermittent Mediterranean river. 1. The imminent damming of the Odelouca River, an intermittent Mediterranean river situated in the south-west Algarve region of Portugal with valuable stands of riparian vegetation, has called for the compulsory implementation of compensatory measures. 2. In order to assess the primary environmental and human factors that drive change in the benthic macroinvertebrate assemblages of the Odelouca, and the spatial scale at which they occur, 30 sites were sampled for benthic macroinvertebrates and extensively surveyed.

The aim was first to rebuild a biotope which had disapeared in the urban area; architects became aware of the benefits that green roofs could provide on water retention only later, in 1989.

3555 Imrovement of the hydrological regime in Kaikusha marsh Обектът - блато Кайкуша - попада в едноименната защитена местност, която е част от природен парк „Персина”. Намира се на 5 km югоизточно от г. Белене и на 2 km северозападно от с. Ореш (географска ширина 43°36' N и географска дължина 25°11' E), и попада изцяло в землището на село Ореш, община Свищов, област Велико Търново (фиг. 1). Известна първоначално като езеро, сега Кайкуша е влажна зона, която в резултат на андигирането на река Дунав и изграждането на отводнителна система е със значително нарушени воден режим и екосистемни функции, и представлява мочурлива територия , обрасла с блатна растителност, без постоянно водно огледало.

Decizia de constituire a parcului a fost adoptata in baza documentatiei tehnice si stiintifice elaborate inca din anul 1954 de catre Academia Romana in vederea delimitarii si protejarii a doua arii de importanta floristica deosebita, respectiv Rezervatia Stiintifica de ghimpe (Ruscus aculeatus) si Rezervatia Stiintifica de bujor (Paeonia peregrina). Acestor doua rezervatii li s-a adaugat incepand din anul 2004 Balta Comana, ca rezervatie naturala si zona de protectie avifaunistica. Restoration on Comana wetlands, Romania
