Almost half the world is comprised of desert or dryland regions. Life in these harsh environments depends upon spectacular rivers that are constantly changing between states of flood and drought, but compared to the other rivers of the world, our knowledge of their ecology is limited. Ecology of Desert Rivers provides a comprehensive account of the variable ecology of these areas and how they determine the behaviour and composition of the organisms that survive in this 'boom and bust' environment. It also covers how human interventions such as the creation of dams affect desert rivers and the animals and plants that depend on them for survival. This book provides an up-to-date synthesis of all aspects of desert river ecology and will appeal to researchers and students in ecology, hydrology and geomorphology as well as conservation managers and policy-makers.

Review:

"I enjoyed reading this book and it has opened my eyes to what is clearly an important freshwater topic that I had previously tended to ignore.... I shall use some of the examples in my teaching and the insights that I gained will be useful even in my own work on rivers..."
Mark Young, Bulletin of the British Ecological Society

Book Description:
