Article - Small streams

Of the 74,000km of river channels in Ireland, almost 57,000km are streams. "I call them the capillaries of our landscape because they collect and distribute water..."  according to Mary Kelly-Quinn, UCD School of Biology and Environmental Science and lead researcher on an EPA-funded project on how to improve water quality and biodiversity in our small streams. This Irish Times article desribes some of this research work and also includes some comments from ACP staff, Edward Burgess and Per-Erik Mellander.
