This text for advanced undergraduates and postgraduates in hydrology, stream ecology, and fisheries science describes methods from engineering hydrology, fluvial geomorphology, and hydraulics, and gives examples of their biological implications. Emphasis is on applications, from collecting and analyzing field measurements to using data and tools in stream management. There is new material on environmental flows, stream rehabilitation, and measuring stream health. B&w photos are included. Reflecting the latest developments in the application of hydrology, geomorphology, and ecology to stream management, this second edition maintains an emphasis on the physical environment, and offers a new version of a software package, available online, that was developed for use with the text. The software assumes no prior knowledge other than basic computer keyboard skills. Information on Gordon is not given. Annotation © 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
