Editorial Reviews

Presents general information, much of it new and original, on the physical and chemical characteristics of riverine systems that can be used to evaluate the structure and functioning of the ecosystems in the particular river systems to be discussed in volumes III-V. The focus is on the types of chemicals present rather than how they effect aquatic life, which will be the topic of volume VI. Emphasizes the different characteristics of headwaters and main stems.
