Abstract: Within the framework of a river restauration concept at the river Traisen a simultaneous investigation of fish and amphibian coenoses was performed. Due to human impacts the ecological integrity of many backwater systems is low, evaluating both vertebrate groups is a possible way of a deficit analysis in lentic ecosystems. The results are compared to recent publications, the importance of habitat variability for species richness and co-existence of both groups is stressed and proved.Keywords:
