Riparia by Robert J. Naiman

Book Description

This book describes the underlying water conditions and geologies that support viable riparia, illustrates the ecological characteristics of riparia, and discusses how riparia are used by human cultures as well as how riparia can be used to sustain environmental quality. In recent years, riparian management has been widely implemented as a means of improving fisheries, water quality, and habitat for endangered species. This book provides the basic knowledge necessary to implement successful, long-term management and rehabilitation programs. It treats riparian patterns and processes in a holistic perspective, from ecological components to societal activities, and contains over 130 illustrations and photos that summarize this complex ecological system. It synthesizes the information from more than 6,000 professional articles, and includes sidebars that provide a look into ongoing research that is at the frontiers of riparian ecology and management.
