The Aquatic-Terrestrial Biodiversity of Dynamic ‘Temporary’ Rivers by Rachel Stubbington

We look forward to welcoming you to the our next instalment in the FBA's seminar series, entitled "The Aquatic-Terrestrial Biodiversity of Dynamic ‘Temporary’ Rivers" by Assoc. Prof. Rachel Stubbington

Rachel is an Associate Professor in Ecology and Environmental Sciences at Nottingham Trent University, a role in which she teaches undergraduates, supervises PhDs and pursues her own research in temporary river ecology. A freshwater invertebrate community ecologist by trade, she has been a member of the FBA since 2007 and became a Fellow earlier this year, and she’s also an Editor-in-Chief for Fundamental and Applied Limnology.

"Rachel’s talk will introduce temporary rivers: dynamic ecosystems that shift between flowing, ponded and dry states to support high aquatic–terrestrial biodiversity. Rachel’s early research explored how aquatic macroinvertebrates survive in rivers that dry, including those that persist in the so-called ‘seedbank’ within dry sediments, and those that burrow into the saturated subsurface sediments that may remain hidden beneath a dry riverbed. More recently, Rachel’s research has increasingly focused on collaboration with Environment Agency scientists to develop methods to assess the ecological health of temporary rivers during both wet and dry phases."
