About this book

Provides a common language for improving communication between researchers, biologists, environmental engineers and others managing or studying riverine environments. Summarises stream classification, stream rehabilitation and methods for determining instream flow requirements. Includes the most recent rapid developments in the area of stream rehabilitation and the setting of environmental flows. A new Windows based set of revised programmes of the computer package AQUAPAK will be available.
