About this book

The vast Pacific coastal ecoregion of the United States contains an extraordinary array of physical settings and examples of the range of dynamics associated with rivers and their management. The interface between the science and policy of natural resource management is illustrated by examples including the protection of riparian forest, the marbled murrelet, salmon, and amphibians.

The wealth of science and literature in the book renders it a useful summary and reference for aquatic and watershed researchers, and most of the concepts and applications extend beyond the ecoregion!.The lessons to be learned from the history, conceptual paradigms, research findings, and management approaches presented in this book are many and varied. --Ecology
