About this book

Lakes across the globe require help.  The Lake Restoration Handbook: A New Zealand Perspective addresses this need through a series of chapters that draw on recent advances in modelling and monitoring tools, citizen science and First Peoples’ roles, catchment and lake-focused restoration techniques, and policy implementation. New Zealand lakes, like lakes across the globe, are subject to multiple pressures that have increased in severity and scale as land use has intensified, invasive species have spread and global climate change becomes manifest. This books builds on the popular Lake Managers Handbook (1987), which provided guidance on undertaking investigations into, and understanding lake ecosystems in New Zealand. The Lake Restoration Handbook: A New Zealand Perspective synthesises contemporary issues related to lake restoration and rehabilitation, integrated with social science and cultural viewpoints, and complemented by authoritative topic-area summaries by renowned scientists and practitioners from across the globe. The book examines the progress of lake restoration and the new and emerging tools available to managers for predicting and effecting change. The book will be a valuable resource for natural and social scientists, policy writers, lake managers, and anyone interested in the health of lake ecosystems.

About the authors

​David Hamilton is Deputy Directory at the Australian Rivers Institute at Griffith University. He held the Bay of Plenty Chair in Lake Restoration at the University of Waikato, New Zealand for 15 years and led a major lake restoration programme designed to provide the underpinning research to address algal blooms and incursions of invasive fish.  This programme provided the impetus for the current book.  Hamilton is an associated editor on two international journals and has led several special issues of scientific journals. He has also held a position at the University of Western Australia where he developed and applied models of lake water quality.

Kevin Collier is a freshwater ecologist at the University of Waikato who has worked across the science-management interface for over 30 years. He has previously co-edited books synthesising ecological knowledge of New Zealand freshwater invertebrates (2000) and the country's longest river, the Waikato River (2010). He is associate editor on two international journals.

John Quinn is an aquatic ecologist who has been Chief Scientist for Freshwater and Estuaries at NIWA since 2015. Over the previous 20 years, he led cross-institute, interdisciplinary, research programmes on river, lake and estuary restoration, river ecosystems and land use interactions and managing forest harvest impacts on streams. He has been a guest editor of two special issues of scientific journals focused on the outputs of these programmes.

Clive Howard-Williams is currently Chief Science Advisor (Natural Resources) at New Zealand's National Institute for Water and Atmospheric Research. He has published widely on freshwater ecosystems from tropical to polar regions, and has led research programmes on wetland, lake and estuarine ecosystems. He has also been involved in freshwater consultancy work on freshwater restoration. Clive has been the guest editor of several books and journal special issues related to aquatic ecology.
