  • Descripción o resumen: Rivers show a remarkable diversity of character and behavior in any catchment. Human activities have impacted profoundly on the inherent variability in patterns and rates of river adjustment, altering what rivers look like, how they behave, and the structure and function of aquatic ecosystems. This book outlines geomorphic considerations for river management and a generic set of procedures, termed the River Styles framework, which provides a set of tools for interpreting river character, behavior, condition, and recovery potential. River management programs that "work with nature" must respect the inherent diversity and behavioral regime of aquatic ecosystems. Each catchment should be managed in its own right, recognizing the patterns and connectivity of river forms and processes, as shaped by the configuration of the system and responses to disturbance events. Applications of the River Styles framework generate a coherent package of geomorphic information that provides a physical template for river rehabilitation activities. This book is essential reading for a wide range of river practitioners, including students, technical officers, consultants, and academics. This book outlines a generic set of procedures, termed the River Styles Framework, which provides a set of tools for interpreting river character, behavior, condition, and recovery potential. Applications of the framework generate a coherent package of geomorphic information, providing a physical template for river rehabilitation activities. management and restoration of rivers is a rapidly growing topic for environmental scientists, geologists and ecologists - this book provides a learning tool with which to approach geomorphic applications to river management describes the essential geomorphological principles underlying river behaviour and evolution demonstrates how the River Styles Framework can turn geomorphic theory into practice, to develop workable strategies for restoration and management based on real case studies and authors extensive experience applicable to river systems worldwide synthesises fluvial geomorphology, ecology and management
