Potential secondary effects of in‐stream wood structures installed for natural flood management: A conceptual model
Published Online: Aug 05 2021
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1546
In addition to reducing flood risks, the installation of wood structures in streams and rivers also influences local geomorphic, ecological, and biogeochemical processes. These additional influences are termed “secondary” effects.

Invertebrate zoogeomorphology: A review and conceptual framework for rivers
Published Online: Jun 25 2021
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1540
Invertebrates affect the transport of sediment in rivers but are often overlooked due to their small size. Diverse behaviors result in significant effects on fluvial geomorphology.

Is the ecosystem approach effective in transboundary water systems: Central Asia as a case study?
Published Online: Jun 16 2021
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1542
While the Ecosystem Approach (EA) holds great potential in the management of transboundary rivers, this advanced review examines the difficulties it encounters in practice, especially in the Global South with a case study of Central Asia, and suggest a holistic approach to overcome such obstacles.

Role of forested land for natural flood management in the UK: A review
Published Online: Jun 07 2021
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1541
Woodlands are known to have a positive effect on flood mitigation, but the impact of different woodland types for natural flood management is not fully understood. We review the current state of research and suggest that improvement is needed in quantifying the effect of woodland types on catchment streamflow.
