Large Woody Debris Restoration Field Experiment Dataset
Riverine species and environmental data relating to Thompson et al. (2017) Large woody debris ‘rewilding’ rapidly restores biodiversity in riverine food webs. Journal of Applied Ecology. The purpose of this study was to test for causal evidence of ecological restoration following the introduction of large woody debris in rivers. Chlorophyll-a and diatom community structure was estimated from stone scrapes; a Hess sampler (0.017m2) with 335µm mesh was used to collect invertebrates and coarse (CPOM) and fine particulate organic matter (FPOM); fish estimates were based on depletion electrofishing; habitat estimates were made using a bathyscope across a grid of fifteen 1 m2 quadrats divided between five equally spaced transects per reach.
