Flood Processes and Ecosystem Services

Ecosystems play a vital role in determining the hydrological response of a river basin. It is, therefore, important to understand the various hydrological processes generating floods, and how ecosystems interact with such processes to influence the volume, magnitude and timing of flood events. This chapter therefore briefly explains the roles of the following ecosystems in flood generating processes:

 

A table at the end of the chapter provides an overview of the different aspects of these ecosystems on floods.
