About this book

Major handbook on the restoration and conservation of these key natural assets. Drawn from a symposium in October 1995, it includes contributions from key decision-makers, leading academics, and those with hands-on responsibilities for implementing practical management in the field. The book falls into four sections: Setting the Agenda outlines the approaches and viewpoints of a range of organizations and individuals; Geomorphology, Hydrology and Water Quality addresses the need to consider the physical and chemical processes which underpin floodplain functioning; Aspects of Biodiversity looks at the habitat and management requirements of floodplain wildlife; and Floodplain Rehabilitation and Restoration presents action to date on restoration work in the UK.
