Birds as bio-indicators: conservation state of watercourses through composition and structure analysis of bird communities; rehabilitation measures in riparian systems.
Rehabilitation plans for watercourses: diagnosis and selection of river stretches for rehabilitation; planning, execution and monitoring of rehabilitation measures; identification of local vegetation potential and development of propagation techniques; monitoring the effectiveness of rehabilitation actions.
