Document Type: Monograph
The Wissey is recognised as a Chalk stream of high conservation value. Its ecological characteristics are likely to be adapted to the good year round flows that are typical of such rivers. Concerns have been raised about the sustainability of the Wissey's high biological quality under the pressures of increasing water abstraction but little scientific information exists on the crucial link between hydrology and ecology. This document provides an executive summary for the full length report.
