"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.

FAO's The State of World's Fisheries and Aquaculture presents a world review of fisheries and aquaculture including trends and statistics. This year's publication presents trends in fish production, consumption and trade, as well FAO's "Blue Growth" initiative, which represents a coherent framework for the sustainable integrated and socio-economically sensitive management of oceans and wetlands. Other themes highlighted include the role of aquaculture in improving nutrition, the importance of reducing post-harvest losses in small-scale fisheries and challenges and opportunities for utilization of fisheries by-products.
