The predicted changes to global weather patterns and increases in the human population will put unprecedented pressure on European freshwater habitats and the species that depend on them. Our success in conserving the ecological value of these habitats will depend greatly on carefully planned conservation management integrated with efficient and reliable monitoring.
Conservation Monitoring in Freshwater Habitats takes an important look at the need for developing clear, site-specific, conservation management goals - something rarely considered in previous publications on freshwater monitoring. The book explores the concept of integrated monitoring for both biological conservation and water quality and provides practical guidance for developing and implementing efficient and reliable monitoring projects. It concludes with a series of case studies covering a range of habitats and species, which illustrate best practice in both decision-making and application.
This timely book will provide a valuable reference for students and researchers in biological and environmental sciences, and for practitioners working in government departments, conservation organisations and ecological consultancies. It will be an essential resource for anyone working towards fulfilling the requirements of both the Water Framework Directive and the EC Habitats Directive.
