Review:

"This outstanding reference contains an enormous amount of information on characterizing and synthesizing natural features of European rivers and their catchments. Topics in this book include land use, climate hydrology, biodiversity, and environmental issues, such as pollution, fragmentation by dams, introduction of non-native species, and loss of biodiversity.I recommend this book highly to anyone interested in rivers."--Journal of the North American Benthological Society, October 2010, page 1527-9
