Effects of revetments on soil ecosystems in the urban river-riparian interface

iScience. 2022 Oct 7;25(11):105277. doi: 10.1016/j.isci.2022.105277. eCollection 2022 Nov 18.


By altering material and energy exchange between river and riparian, the city revetments have an unknown impact on the service function of river-riparian interface (RRI) ecosystems. This study analyzes the differences in natural, permeable (PR), and impervious revetment (IR). We found that the water-filled porosity of revetment increased from 20% to 100%, which coincided with an increase in soil potassium, air-filled porosity, the surface soil of moisture and organic matter (SOM), and a decrease in soil nitrogen, phosphorus nutrients, and in the middle and deep soil SOM. The changes affected the abundance of dominant bacterial and fungi genera. Compared with the PR, surface soil moisture, pH, and underground biomass were lower in IR surface soils, while surface soil SOM and middle soil moisture were higher. This research provides a development direction and theoretical basis for future urban planning and environmental governance.
