About this Book

Fast changing legislation and increasing environmental awareness within the non-scientific community demands that the modern approach to the management of rivers and water resources should be based on a sound understanding and application of the scientific and ecological principles that underlie freshwater processes. In two volumes, The Rivers Handbook offers an expert and exhaustive insight into the principles, methods and tools of modern river management - always within an integrated and environmentally acceptable framework. This second volume develops the principles and philosophies expounded in the first volume into the management sphere, organizing the approach around problems, diagnosis and treatment.


  • A fully comprehensive reference to sound methods of modern river management.
  • The ideal information resource for all river managers.
