|Title of the thesis:||Vegetation effect on the erosion-sedimentation processes in the floodplain soils of River Schwechat, Austria|
|Summary:||In ecological literature, limiting factors for riparian ecosystem were previously
considered to be riparian habitat structure, water flow variability, sedimentation and
erosion. Recent scientist have started to focus their attention to the feedback between form
and function in fluvial ecosystems considering that not only geomorphology controls
riparian vegetation dynamics, but also riparian vegetation controls geomorphology.
The work deals with the impact of vegetation on the erosion-sedimentation
processes in Fluvisols during flood events. Erosion-sedimentation processes significantly
change the channel of the river and its surroundings and the sediment movement indicator
is the critical value of the shear stress.
Thesis follows selected vegetation characteristics and their effect on the hummus
horizons in Fluvisols at the selected area of the River Schwechat. Thesis contains also
detailed characteristic of the vegetation at the site and modelling of the shear stress during
