Book Description :

From the Preface This text is designed to provide a fundamental knowledge of the phenomenon known as self-purification in streams. Sufficient background information and references on stream ecology and self-purification are presented to provide readers with an understanding of the various concepts under discussion. Moreover, along with the stream self-purification process and biological indication of stream health, water quality and source sampling are discussed in depth. Wastewater and water treatment personnel, students, specialists, water resource managers, ecologists, regulators, and water pollution control personnel concerned with activities and preventive measures to prevent stream pollution will find this consolidated information important. Other professional wastewater- and water-related staff from governmental agencies, municipal water supply and wastewater systems, public health departments, and environmental health agencies will also find the information valuable. This text, however, is also intended for readers and groups interested in and concerned with stream pollution and stream contamination control. This text can be used as a basic or supplemental text in undergraduate and technical school courses in aquatic ecology or stream quality enhancement and protection. It can also be consulted as an environmental reference text by school, municipal, and water resource professionals.

Book Description :

As the vast expanses of natural forests and the great populations of salmonids are harvested to support a rapidly expanding human population, the need to understand streams as ecological systems and to manage them effectively becomes increasingly urgent. The unfortunate legacy of such natural resource exploitation is well documented. For several decades the Pacific coastal ecoregion of North America has served as a natural laboratory for scientific and managerial advancements in stream ecology, and much has been learned about how to better integrate ecological processes and characteristics with a human-dominated environment. These in sightful but hard-learned ecological and social lessons are the subject of this book. Integrating land and rivers as interactive components of ecosystems and watersheds has provided the ecological sciences with impor tant theoretical foundations. Even though scientific disciplines have begun to integrate land-based processes with streams and rivers, the institutions and processes charged with managing these systems have not done so successfully. As a result, many of the watersheds of the Pacific coastal ecoregion no longer support natural settings for environmental processes or the valuable natural resources those processes create. An important role for scientists, educators, and decision makers is to make the integration between ecology and con sumptive uses more widely understood, as well as useful for effective management.

GET BOOK

Book Description :

While both science and impact assessment rely on technical studies, they differ in fundamental goals, approach and scope, and final products. Research and management biologists come from similar educational backgrounds, share similar career interests, and have a high regard for biological knowledge. However, varied philosophy and interests emerge due to different work settings and responsibilities. Science is defined as systematized knowledge derived from observation, study, and experimentation carried on in order to determine the nature or principles of what is being studied. The basic approach to study is the scientific method: observation, hypothesis formation, hypothesis testing, deriving results, and interpreting findings relative to principle or theories. Impact assessment is the process of documenting the important consequences of proposed actions by (1) objective analyses of current and predicted conditions and (2) subjective evaluation of the significance of predicted changes. In contrast to the scientific method, the impact assessment method uses distinctly different steps: reviewing proposed actions, documenting baseline conditions, identifying possible impacts, predicting changes, documenting significant impacts, and formulating recommendations. The definitions and methods of both science and impact assessment reflect the fundamental differences between these endeavors.

Book Description :

Across the United States, municipalities, counties, and states grapple with issues of ensuring adequate amounts of water in times of high demand and low supply. Instream flow programs aim to balance ecosystem requirements and human uses of water, and try to determine how much water should be in rivers. With its range of river and ecosystem conditions, growing population, and high demands on water, Texas is representative of instream flow challenges across the United States, and its instream flow program may be a model for other jurisdictions. Three state agenciesâ€"the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB), the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD), and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ)â€"asked a committee of the National Research Council (NRC) to review the Programmatic Work Plan (PWP) and Technical Overview Document (TOD) that outline the state’s instream flow initiative. The committee suggested several changes to the proposed plan, such as establishing clearer goals, modifying the flow chart that outlines the necessary steps for conducting an instream flow study, and provide better linkages between individual studies of biology, hydrology and hydraulics, physical processes, and water quality.

Book Description :

Since the publication of the first edition (1994) there have been rapid developments in the application of hydrology, geomorphology and ecology to stream management. In particular, growth has occurred in the areas of stream rehabilitation and the evaluation of environmental flow needs. The concept of stream health has been adopted as a way of assessing stream resources and setting management goals. Stream Hydrology: An Introduction for Ecologists Second Edition documents recent research and practice in these areas. Chapters provide information on sampling, field techniques, stream analysis, the hydrodynamics of moving water, channel form, sediment transport and commonly used statistical methods such as flow duration and flood frequency analysis. Methods are presented from engineering hydrology, fluvial geomorphology and hydraulics with examples of their biological implications. This book demonstrates how these fields are linked and utilised in modern, scientific river management. Emphasis on applications, from collecting and analysing field measurements to using data and tools in stream management. Updated to include new sections on environmental flows, rehabilitation, measuring stream health and stream classification. Critical reviews of the successes and failures of implementation. Revised and updated windows-based AQUAPAK software. This book is essential reading for 2nd/3rd year undergraduates and postgraduates of hydrology, stream ecology and fisheries science in Departments of Physical Geography, Biology, Environmental Science, Landscape Ecology, Environmental Engineering and Limnology. It would be valuable reading for professionals working in stream ecology, fisheries science and habitat management, environmental consultants and engineers.
