This book outlines a generic set of procedures, termed the River Styles Framework, which provides a set of tools for interpreting river character, behavior, condition, and recovery potential. Applications of the framework generate a coherent package of geomorphic information, providing a physical template for river rehabilitation activities.





  • management and restoration of rivers is a rapidly growing topic for environmental scientists, geologists and ecologists - this book provides a learning tool with which to approach geomorphic applications to river management




  • describes the essential geomorphological principles underlying river behaviour and evolution




  • demonstrates how the River Styles Framework can turn geomorphic theory into practice, to develop workable strategies for restoration and management




  • based on real case studies and authors extensive experience




  • applicable to river systems worldwide




  • synthesises fluvial geomorphology, ecology and management
