In the ten years since the publication of the first edition of this Handbook, there has been a revolution in the philosophy, understanding and techniques of river management. This fully revised edition is a practical guide to the techniques of river management that integrate the requirements of flood defence, wildlife, and other river interests. Chapters cover: River Processes and Biology; Survey Methods; and Management Practices to Benefit Wildlife; Case Studies; and Appendices of Health & Safety, Legislation, and Nomenclature. An invaluable manual for anyone involved in water management.
