dc.description.abstract Riparian ecosystems are required to be preserved to achieve a good ecological status. The Water Framework Directive (2000/60/EC) specifically supports the assessment of new management tools that allow the European Member States to achieve good ecological status of river-related ecosystems. Within several approaches, a dynamic riparian vegetation distributed model (CASiMiR-vegetation), with a time step of 1 year, has been selected as a useful first-step tool to achieve the Water Framework Directive requirements. The model has been implemented into three river reaches with different climatic and hydrologic settings, located in three European countries. Common bases were established in the model setup. The model was calibrated independently in the Kleblach reach (Drau River, Austria), the Ribeira reach (Odelouca River, Portugal), and the Terde reach (Mijares River, Spain) with simulation periods of 8, 11 and 41 years, respectively. The parameter values and the results were comparable between the different countries. The calibration performance achieved high correctly classified instances (60%). Additionally, weighted kappa values ranged from 0·52 to 0·66 in distinguishing riparian succession phases. The model behaved similarly in the validation, even offering better results in most cases. This work demonstrates the applicability of this model in the simulation of the riparian vegetation dynamic distribution over a wide range of environments. As it performs in a robust manner and with good results in reaches with different hydrological characteristics, the model could be also applied to analyse different hydrological scenarios or to predict changes after restoration measures within a reach.

dc.description.sponsorship The Austrian team would like to thank the Lebensministerium (Austrian Ministry of Environment) and Professor Helmut Habersack and his group from the University of Natural Resources and Life Science Vienna for the supply of the hydrological data. The Portuguese team would like to thank Antonio Pinheiro for his supervision of the hydraulic modelling. The hydrological data were supplied by the Portuguese National Hydrologic Resource Information System (SNIRH) and aerial photographs by the Portuguese Geographic Institute (IGP) under the FIGIEE programme. Patricia M. Rodriguez-Gonzalez benefited from a postdoctoral grant from FCT (SFRH/BPD/47140/2008). Antonio Albuquerque was a valuable assistant in field work. The Spanish team would like to thank in addition the Hydrological Studies Centre (CEH-CEDEX), the Jucar River Basin Authority (CHJ) and the Spanish National Geographic Information Centre (CNIG) for supplying the hydrological data and the aerial photographs for the Spanish study site. en_EN
