Media reviews

"This book is packed with the latest and best 'how to' information for field and laboratory work in streams. The new edition has expanded content, a larger format, and much better graphics [...] The greatest content change is the addition of a 6th section entitled Ecosystem Quality. Section 6 is anchored by a substantially rewritten chapter on 'Macroinvertebrates as Biotic Indicators of Environmental Quality' [...] I like the way in which doable, detailed, stepwise exercises, including the math, are provided in a format appealing to students interested in conducting stream studies [...] I think that even an advanced high school student with access to this book should be able design an independent study project in stream ecology. I would really like to see it in high school libraries, as well as on college and university campuses. The greatest strength of this book is that it is written by leading authorities in stream ecology. The structure is better organized and more informative than the previous edition. The format is conducive to teaching and learning. I grade this book an 'A'"
