...is clear and concise...this enable readers to 'dip-in' to those sections of the text of particular interest or relevance to them. (Institute of Fisheries Management Magazine (FISH), 2000) "...an excellent overview of a problem which is becoming of increasing concern...will be a useful reference" (Aslib Book Guide, November 2000) "This publication is an absolute mine of information about global river conservation" (The Jnl of the Chartered Inst. of Water Environment Management, Vol. 15, 2001) "The volume is rich in comparative studies referring to different aspects of the problem area. Superb photographs make reading even more pleasant. I foresee that this book will raise considerable interest of an international multidisciplinary readership." (Hydrological Sciences Journal, August 2001) "an integrated view of the world's rivers with wide breadth and minimal overlap" (Environmental Practice, September 2001) "the book can be highly recommended, as it provides a comprehensive and updated review of global river conservation perspectives."
