Academic press  June 2006  



Hardback  896 pages  ISBN 9780123329073      £68.00
  • Provides a variety of exercises in each chapter to accomodate both the student and the practicing scientist
  • Covers all areas of stream ecology in chapters written by leading experts in their respective fields
  • Includes detailed instructions, illustrations, formulae, and data sheets for conducting stream ecology
  • Presents taxonomic keys to common stream invertebbrates and algae

This bestselling title has been significantly revised and updated. Now including important information on remote sensing, the relation between stream flow and alluviation, coverage of macrophyte and a new chapter on riparian zones. Providing a complete series of field and laboratory protocols in stream ecology that are idea for teaching or conducting research. The scope of this unique book covers five important areas of stream ecology: Physical Stream Ecology, Material Storage and Transport, Stream Biota, Community Interactions, and Ecosystem Processes. Of interest to advanced undergraduate, graduate students, faculty, researchers, federal, state and local government officials interested in and responsible for stream evaluation and monitoring. Previous editions of the book have been used in courses.
