Environmental economists, ecological engineers and aquatic biologists detail in this volume their research on the benefits and costs of various water quality, infrastructure, scenic and historic river corridor impacts and improvements as a guide to policy on river and related watershed restoration.
'It is rare to find a book that attempts to integrate physical, biological and social sciences (economics) to address environmental problems, but this book does a great job of it. It is also rare to find a book that addresses both the benefits and the costs of river restoration, and again this book delivers. This collection of case studies provides an informative and practical guide to conducting economic analyses of many different types of river restoration. Scientists interested in quantifying the benefits and costs of river restoration will gain a very quick and thorough education from the case studies presented in this book.'- John Loomis, Colorado State University, US
