Environmental Management of River Basin Ecosystems offers a unique collection of inter- and multidisciplinary studies on river systems. Rivers have been the prime source of sustenance since the advent of civilization and river systems often form the basis for agriculture, transport, water, and land for domestic, commercial, and industrial activities, fostering economic prosperity. A river basin is a basic geographical and climatological unit within which the vagaries of natural processes act and manifest themselves at different spatio-temporal scales. Even if compared side-by-side, no two river basins respond to natural processes in the same way and thus, it has long been recognized that each river basin is unique. Hence, any developmental activity or conservation effort has to be designed and implemented to match each unique river basin.
With the burgeoning population and increasing dependency on natural resources, understanding and maintaining river systems has become increasingly important. Environmental Management of River Basin Ecosystems provides a varied reference work on and unprecedented guidelines for conducting and implementing research on river basins, and for managing their ecological development.
