River Futures by Gary J. Brierley
Book DescriptionAcross much of the industrialized world, rivers that were physically transformed and ecologically ruined to facilitate industrial and agricultural development are now the focus of restoration and rehabilitation efforts. "River Futures" discusses the emergence of this new era of river repair and documents a biophysical framework for river science and management.The book provides a holistic overview of considerations that underpin the use of science in river management, emphasizing cross-disciplinary understanding that builds on a landscape template. This volume: frames the development of integrative river science and its application to river rehabilitation programs; develops a coherent set of guiding principles with which to approach integrative river science; considers the application of cross-disciplinary thinking in river rehabilitation experiences from around the world; and, examines the crossover between science and management, outlining issues that must be addressed to promote healthier river futures. It contains case studies which explore practical applications in different parts of the world, highlighting approaches to the use of integrative river science, measures of success, and steps that could be taken to improve performance in future efforts."River Futures" is a valuable resource for anyone involved in river restoration and management, including restorationists, scientists, managers, and policymakers, as well as undergraduate and graduate students.
