Summary "With increasing pressures on the environment, the need to manage rivers as ecosystems has been recognized. Integrating techniques and theories from ecology and hydrology, the management of natural processes in the water cycle will be more effective in improving the resilience, resistance and adaptation of aquatic ecosystems. In this way, the natural organisms of river basins can be preserved, enhanced or restored for sustainable use and management."--BOOK JACKET
