About this book

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.

Reviews

`Students of environmental science, ecology, geomorphology and civil engineering will all benefit from this textbook.'
Water Bulletin
`After reading it, I pondered for a long time over what made it good and finally concluded that in this case it was the whole instead of the parts. The text is very well written, easy to read and comprehend, interesting in its presentation, practically void of mathematical equations, and contains an excellent reference listing of over 500 publications. in conclusion, I highly recommend this book for anyone working in the water resource field who esires a better understanding of large river systems. All of us can learn from this book, and it will become a valuable addition to one's library, used frequently, and will not sit gathering dust.'
Journal of the American Water Resources Association, 34:3 (1998)
