Review:

"...this book is ideal for use by conservation organizations and monitoring groups."
-SOUTHEASTERN NATURALIST, (2005)

"Cushing and Allen have written an attractive and easy-to-read book that will appeal to the nonprofessional, but seriously interested stream-lover for whom it is intended. Superb color photographs of streams and organisms will please any naturalist. ...the book combines the advantages of reference book and field guide, and provides a nontrivial account of ecosystem function in streams and rivers. ...All in all, a good book that J-NABS readers can confidently recommend to others, especially nonprofessionals"
?Rosemary J. Mackay for JOURNAL OF THE NORTH AMERICAN BENTHOLOGICAL SOCIETY (2002)

"This book is very well organized. It is a comprehensive volume that covers all the basics of stream ecology and would serve as a useful reference for both professional and lay audiences. ...This is the best available road map through the scientific complexities of a discipline that informs our understanding of environmental quality.
--Charles F. Gauvin, President and CEO, TROUT UNLIMITED (May 2001)

"This informative volume is exactly what has long been needed - a book that tells us how rivers and their essential life systems work. Every reader's understanding of our watery lifelines will be enhanced by the superb knowledge and wisdom that these fine scientists impart. Streams: Their Ecology and Life will become a useful tool for better care of our waterways and an essential companion to river enthusiasts."
--Tim Palmer, author of "Lifelines: The Case for River Conservation, America by Rivers", and "The Heart of America"
"When the president of a local watershed protection group asks me what book to read to learn about streams, I'll recommend this one. It is an engaging introduction to the ecology of rivers and streams. The authors' enthusiasm for the subject is contagious."
--Judy Meyer, Director of Science, River Basin Science and Policy Center, University of Georgia
