About this book

Examines the ecological systems that exist along rivers, focusing on plant communities of river banks and floodplains. The book uses the approach of landscape ecology to organise and assess the vast literature on riparian ecosystems.

'The book is well structured, with good scene-setting introductions to each chapter ... its clear layout and the useful chapter summary and conclusion paragraphs would make it useful reading for undergraduates looking into riparian ecology ... Riparian Landscapes gives a comprehensive perspective on the dynamics of ecology and landscape response along rivers.' Pauline Kneale, Circulation 'What Malanson contributes ... in this valuable work is a detailed analysis of the ecological and hydrological structure and dynamics of riparian ecotones ... well worth the price ... and is required reading for all those interested in riparian landscapes.' Journal of Biogeography
