About this book

Our rivers are in crisis and the need for river restoration has never been more urgent. Water security and biodiversity indices for all of the world's major rivers have declined due to pollution, diversions, impoundments, fragmented flows, introduced and invasive species, and many other abuses.

Developing successful restoration responses are essential. Renewing Our Rivers addresses this need head on with examples of how to design and implement stream-corridor restoration projects. Based on the experiences of seasoned professionals, Renewing Our Rivers provides stream restoration practitioners the main steps to develop successful and viable stream restoration projects that last. Ecologists, geomorphologists, and hydrologists from dryland regions of Australia, Mexico, and the United States share case studies and key lessons learned for successful restoration and renewal of our most vital resource.

The aim of this guide is to offer essential restoration guidance that allows a start-to-finish overview of what it takes to bring back a damaged stream corridor. Chapters cover planning, such emerging themes as climate change and environmental flow, the nuances of implementing restoration tactics, and monitoring restoration results. Renewing Our Rivers provides community members, educators, students, natural resource practitioners, experts, and scientists broader perspectives on how to move the science of restoration to practical success.

Media reviews

"The practitioners of restoration science arrive at the profession from many disciplinary and experiential directions. Proper orientation concerning the appropriate spatial and temporal scales of analysis, as well as basic hydrologic processes, are essential to the development of efficient restoration designs. Further, the design must be implemented, monitored, and maintained to achieve the environmental goals. This book provides a foundation for entry into and progress through the restoration of stream corridors in dryland areas. For new practitioners, this book provides a guide through the complexities of stream corridor restoration."
