Convener: Annunziato Siviglia  | Co-Conveners: Knut Alfredsen , Christopher Robinson 
 / Wed, 06 Apr, 16:30–17:15  / Room 37

Poster Summaries & Discussions Session: the session will be dedicated to two short presentations (10 minutes) from the solicited speakers, and a short presentation (2 slides, 2 minutes) from each author from the poster session to shortly describe the highlights of his/her poster. Aim of this session is to give an overview of the research presented in posters, thus facilitating a productive poster session

Public information: Long Presentation (12 min each)

1)Experimental Flows from Glen Canyon Dam Reveal Surprises for Adaptive Resource Management of the Colorado River in Grand Canyon, USA. T.Melis, T. Kennedy, J. Korman, and C Walters
2) Benthic invertebrates as ecological indicators of impounded rivers. O. Moog and I. Stubauer
