  • Hydrological and Biological Responses to Forest Practices

    My original idea to reactivate the Alsea streamflow monitoring program was part of a sabbatical leave supported by the National Council for Air and Stream Improvement, Inc. (NCASI) and the Department of Forest Engineering, Oregon State University (OSU). The camaraderie of George Ice and Ben Stout (NCASI) in particular made for an enjoyable leave ...

  • Monitoring Ecological Change

    The state of ecosystems, biological communities and species are continuously changing as a result of both natural processes and the activities of humans. In order to detect and understand these changes, effective ecological monitoring programmes are required. This book offers an introduction to the topic and provides both a rationale for ...

  • Fishways: biological basis, design criteria and monitoring Bulletin français de la pêche et de la pisciculture nº 364, supplément

    Fisheries in inland waters have long provided an important source of food for mankind. One way to make the use of these resources sustainable and to improve food security and livelihoods is through the development of sustainable fisheries management practices which are not only important to manage fisheries in developing countries but also of ...

  • Conservation Monitoring in Freshwater Habitats

    The predicted changes to global weather patterns and increases in the human population will put unprecedented pressure on European freshwater habitats and the species that depend on them. Our success in conserving the ecological value of these habitats will depend greatly on carefully planned conservation management integrated with efficient and ...

  • Coastal Monitoring Through Partnerships

    As the coastal human population increases in the United States, there will likely be increasing environmental and socioeconomic pressures on our coastal and estuarine environments. Monitoring the condition of all our nation's coastal and estuarine ecosystems over the long term is more than any one program can accomplish on its own. Therefore, ...
