With $2 billion spent annually on stream restoration worldwide,there is a pressing need for guidance in this area, but until now,there was no comprehensive text on the subject. Filling that void,this unique text covers both new and existing information followinga stepwise approach on theory, planning, implementation, andevaluation methods for the restoration of stream habitats.Comprehensively illustrated with case studies from around theworld, Stream and Watershed Restoration provides asystematic approach to restoration programs suitable for graduateand upper-level undergraduate courses on stream or watershedrestoration or as a reference for restoration practitioners andfisheries scientists. Part of the Advancing River Restoration and ManagementSeries.

"This book summarizes the important aspects of brown trout's biology and ecology. It includes several chapters focused on the impact caused by the species and on potential management strategies to, first, maintain numerous damaged populations within their natural distributional range and, second, ameliorate its impacts on exotic environments. Authors from all over the world involved in their study and management offer reviews and case studies that provide insight into theory and practice"--

Thirty years ago, urban streams were perceived as little more than flood control devices designed to hurry water through cities and neighborhoods with scant thought for aesthetics or ecological considerations. But stream restoration pioneers like hydrologist Ann Riley argued that by restoring ecological function, and with careful management, streams and rivers could be a net benefit to cities, instead of a net liability. Riley has since spearheaded numerous urban stream restoration projects and put to rest the long-held misconception that degraded urban streams are beyond help. What has been missing, however, is detailed guidance for restoration practitioners wanting to undertake similar urban stream restoration projects that worked with, rather than against, nature. This book presents the author's thirty years of practical experience managing long-term stream and river restoration projects in heavily degraded urban environments. Although the case studies are local, the principles, methods, and tools are universal, and can be applied in almost any city in the world.

Technik und Ökologie sind in diesem Werk zum naturnahen Wasserbau gleichwertige Partner. In einer fachübergreifenden Blickweise wendet sich das Fachbuch an die in Wasserwirtschafts- und Naturschutzverwaltungen sowie in Planungsbüros tätigen Ingenieure, Landespfleger und Biologen sowie an alle, die für Ausbau und Unterhaltung von Fließgewässern zuständig oder daran interessiert sind. Die drei Autoren beschreiben die Entwicklung der Fließgewässer mit ihren Lebensräumen und erläutern auf dieser Grundlage die Methoden des naturnahen Wasserbaus. Umfassende Hinweise zur rechtlichen Situation, zum Planungsablauf und auf neue Aspekte bei der Gewässerunterhaltung sind ebenso enthalten wie hydrologische, hydraulische und sedimentologische Grundlagen. Vorgestellt wird ein geschlossenes Bild für Planung und Durchführung naturnaher Maßnahmen an unseren Fließgewässern. Das Buch enthält zahlreiche erläuternde Farbabbildungen und Grafiken, um die Gestaltungsmöglichkeiten des naturnahen Wasserbaus bei der Renaturierung und Pflege von Fließgewässern aufzuzeigen.

Over the past decade, a sea change has occurred in the field of forestry. A vastly increased understanding of how ecological systems function has transformed the science from one focused on simplifying systems, producing wood, and managing at the stand-level to one concerned with understanding and managing complexity, providing a wide range of ecological goods and services, and managing across broad landscapes.Creating a Forestry for the 21st Centuryis an authoritative and multidisciplinary examination of the current state of forestry and its relation to the emergent field of ecosystem management. Drawing upon the expertise of top professionals in the field, it provides an up-to-date synthesis of principles of ecosystem management and their implications for forest policy. Leading scientists, including Malcolm Hunter, Jr., Bruce G. Marcot, James K. Agee, Thomas R. Crow, Robert J. Naiman, John C. Gordon, R.W. Behan, Steven L. Yaffee, and many others examine topics that are central to the future of forestry: new understandings of ecological processes and principles, from stand structure and function to disturbance processes and the movement of organisms across landscapes challenges to long-held assumptions: the rationale for clearcutting, the wisdom of short rotations, the exclusion of fire traditional tools in light of expanded goals for forest landscapes managing at larger spatial scales, including practical information and ideas for managing large landscapes over long time periods the economic, organizational, and political issues that are critical to implementing successful ecosystem management and developing institutions to transform knowledge into action Featuring a 16-page center section with color photographs that illustrate some of the best on-the-ground examples of ecosystem management from around the world, Creating a Forestry for the 21st Centuryis the definitive text on managing ecosystems. It provides a compelling case for thinking creatively beyond the bounds of traditional forest resource management, and will be essential reading for students; scientists working in state, federal, and private research institutions; public and private forest managers; staff members of environmental/conservation organizations; and policymakers.
