Figure 13. The Tagliamento River and floodplain in northeastern Italy. Note the diverse array of hydrogeomorphic surfaces, including vegetated islands, gravel bars, off-channel pools and non-flowing channels. The different surfaces will become inundated at different magnitude floods and thus will be flooded at different frequencies over time. The diverse array of flooding frequencies provides habitat for a diverse group of aquatic and riparian organisms.
