Editors: Hannah S. Elliot and Lucas E. Martin
Book Description:
Management and restoration of river ecosystems are based on an understanding of the relations between physical, chemical and biological processes at varying time scales. This new book examines river ecology, disturbances of the ecology and restoration strategies. Topics discussed include the social side of river management; historical change and management of the floodplain forests of the Middle Elbe River; pollution, water quality, toxic contamination and fish health of the Volga River and the relationship between river management and economic growth in urban regions.
