A derivative of the Encyclopedia of Inland Waters, River Ecosystem Ecology reviews the function of rivers and streams as ecosystems as well as the varied activities and interactions that occur among their abiotic and biotic components. Because the articles are drawn from an encyclopedia, the articles are easily accessible to interested members of the public, such as conservationists and environmental decision makers.
- Includes an up-to-date summary of global aquatic ecosystems and issues
- Covers current environmental problems and management solutions
- Features full-color figures and tables to support the text and aid in understanding
