This book outlines a generic set of procedures, termed the River Styles Framework, which provides a set of tools for interpreting river character, behavior, condition, and recovery potential. Applications of the framework generate a coherent package of geomorphic information, providing a physical template for river rehabilitation activities.
- management and restoration of rivers is a rapidly growing topic for environmental scientists, geologists and ecologists - this book provides a learning tool with which to approach geomorphic applications to river management
- describes the essential geomorphological principles underlying river behaviour and evolution
- demonstrates how the River Styles Framework can turn geomorphic theory into practice, to develop workable strategies for restoration and management
- based on real case studies and authors extensive experience
- applicable to river systems worldwide
- synthesises fluvial geomorphology, ecology and management

Kirstie Fryirs has worked on various river systems in Australia. Her PhD developed a framework for assessing geomorphic river condition and recovery potential.
Gary and Kirstie are codevelopers of the River Styles framework and the River Styles short course.
