Purpose

The purpose of the data was to study short-term geomorphic and riparian vegetation responses to a large magnitude flood in the context of an invasion of a plant engineer species. We aimed to: i) quantify the changes in channel geometry, topography and sediment quality caused by the flood, and ii) identify plant species and groups that are more or less favored by erosion and deposition of sediments.
