Launches a series for both practitioners and researchers in landscape ecology, which concerns itself with the interrelations among the various components of the landscape, such as flora, fauna, soil, water, and air. From a workshop of the International Centre of Landscape Ecology (date and location not noted), 20 papers investigate the growing problem of exotic plants clogging the waterways and presenting other problems in European rivers and streams. The approaches include the biology and ecology of several species; management techniques such as grazing, chemical, and biological; the impact of control measures on the rest of the ecology; and waterways as transport corridors for the nasty foreign weeds.
