Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fluvial Hydrosystems provides a unified approach to the study of running waters and aims to provide a scientific basis for sustainable management of rivers. It differs from traditional texts in viewing rivers as structured, four-dimensional systems and integrating ecological and geomorphological approaches to provide a holistic perspective on river dynamics. Advanced students of geomorphology, ecology, environmental science, land use and civil engineering will all benefit from this wide-ranging and stimulating textbook.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [279]-306) and index.

Table of Contents

The fluvial hydrosystem. A drainage basin perspective. Hydrological and hydrochemical dynamics. Geomorphology of temperate rivers. Hydrological and geomorphological structure of hydrostreams. Primary production and primary producers. Aquatic invertebrates. Fish populations in rivers. Interactions between units of the fluvial hydrosystem. Ecological successions. Human impacts on fluvial hydrosystems. Fluvial hydrosystems: a management perspective. References. Index.
