Abstract
Hydropeaking as a result of peak-load electricity production has been identified as one of the most significant pressures in alpine streams. Scouring of macroinvertebrates leads to downstream transport of aquatic organisms (catastrophic drift). Additionally, invertebrates are affected by periodic drying of wetted area during the dewatering of gravel bars and exposed areas along the banks. Even though fish are physiologically better adapted to...
