  • descriptionAbstract

    Many species of plants have strong attachments with the riparian zones, since they grow throughout the margins of the water. The humid microclimate of the riparian zone and the humidity of the ground, originated by the water outcropping and by the water of the land near the surface, makes them suitable habitats for many small amphibians and some small mammals. From the edge of the water and progressively towards the inside forest, frequently successive bands of vegetation are defined, by means of very small changes in the topography. These ecosystems have many attributes that creates more biological diversity: sequential limits, successional patterns, vertical disposition in layers, special microhabitats defined by their physical characteristics. River minnows, frogs and squirrels, algae, platanus, willows, pines and oaks; all of them thrive the beaches a long the streams.

    Keyworks: riparian ecosystem, community, dynamics, management.
