River Networks as Ecological Corridors for Species Populations and Water borne Diseases

This was the talk given by Andrea Rinaldo for the opening day of the 2013-2014 Doctoral Academic year of our doctoral School. Andrea is possibly the most influential Italian hydrologist ever (if we do not count as proto-hydrologist Leonardo da Vinci).  

 It was a fascinating and passionate travel through river networks structure (their topology, their physical origin), a research of which I was a active witness for some period, and the spreading of diseases or populations (but without loosing appropriate generality in the description of the phenomena) along the networks.
