Methods in Stream Ecologyprovides a complete series of field and laboratory protocols in stream ecology that are ideal for teaching or conducting research. This two part new edition is updated to reflect recent advances in the technology associated with ecological assessment of streams, including remote sensing. Volume focusses on ecosystem structure with in-depth sections on Physical Processes, Material Storage and Transport and Stream Biota. With a student-friendly price, this Third Edition is key for all students and researchers in stream and freshwater ecology, freshwater biology, marine ecology, and river ecology. This text is also supportive as a supplementary text for courses in watershed ecology/science, hydrology, fluvial geomorphology, and landscape ecology.

"This book is packed with the latest and best ‘how to’ information for field and laboratory work in streams. The new edition has expanded content, a larger format, and much better graphics...The greatest content change is the addition of a 6th section entitled Ecosystem Quality. Section 6 is anchored by a substantially rewritten chapter on ‘Macroinvertebrates as Biotic Indicators of Environmental Quality’...I like the way in which doable, detailed, stepwise exercises, including the math, are provided in a format appealing to students interested in conducting stream studies...I think that even an advanced high school student with access to this book should be able design an independent study project in stream ecology. I would really like to see it in high school libraries, as well as on college and university campuses. The greatest strength of this book is that it is written by leading authorities in stream ecology. The structure is better organized and more informative than the previous edition. The format is conducive to teaching and learning. I grade this book an 'A'."--Ben Stout, Wheeling Jesuit University, West Virginia, USA
