Elsevier updates second volume of Methods in Stream Ecology

One of eight new earth and environmental sciences books, new edition offers a complete series of field and laboratory protocols ideal for teaching or conducting research

Cambridge, MA, August 29, 2017

Elsevier, the information analytics business specializing in science and health, today announced the publication of Methods in Stream Ecology, Volume 2: Ecosystem Function, Third Edition, edited by F. Richard Hauer and Gary A. Lamberti. Updated to reflect recent advances in the technology associated with ecological assessment of streams - including remote sensing - Volume 2 covers community interactions, ecosystem processes and ecosystem quality. Elsevier also announced the publication of seven additional earth and environmental sciences books.

Methods in Stream Ecology, Volume 2: Ecosystem Function, Third Edition provides a complete series of field and laboratory protocols in stream ecology that are ideal for teaching or conducting research. With a student-friendly price, the new edition is a valuable resource for all students and researchers in stream and freshwater ecology, freshwater biology, marine ecology and river ecology. The book is also appropriate as a supplementary text for courses in watershed ecology/science, hydrology, fluvial geomorphology and landscape ecology.

F. Richard (Ric) Hauer is Director of the University of Montana’s Center for Integrated Research on the Environment (CIRE) and Professor of Stream Ecology at the Flathead Lake Biological Station where he has taught stream ecology for more than 25 years. His major research interests encompass the broad, interdisciplinary field of ecosystem ecology with focus on freshwaters, especially running waters and gravel-bed river floodplains and wetlands. Dr. Hauer’s research extends from physical processes of sediment transport and groundwater/surface water interactions to aquatic insect life histories and ecosystem assessment. He is particularly interested in the application of remotely sensed data to understanding biophysical processes of floodplain ecology.

Dr. Gary A. Lamberti is Professor of Biological Sciences and Director of the Stream and Wetland Ecology Laboratory (SWEL) at the University of Notre Dame, where he teaches biostatistics, stream ecology, restoration ecology, and a variety of topical graduate courses. Dr. Lamberti also directs the GLOBES Graduate Certificate Program in Environment and Society at Notre Dame. His major research interests include food web ecology of streams and wetlands, ranging from microbes to fish; the ecology of native and introduced Pacific salmon; and the impacts of climate change, toxins, and invasive species on aquatic ecosystem function. Dr. Lamberti retains a fundamental love for aquatic invertebrates, which permeates all of his research.

In order to meet content needs in earth and environmental sciences, Elsevier uses proprietary tools to identify the gaps in coverage of the topics. Editorial teams strategically fill those gaps with content written by key influencers in the field, giving students, faculty and researchers the content they need to answer challenging questions and improve outcomes. These new books, which will educate the next generation of earth and environmental scientists, and provide critical foundational content for information professionals, are key examples of how Elsevier is enabling science to drive innovation.
