About the Authors
  • Riparian Landscapes examines the ecological systems of streamside and floodplain areas from the perspective of landscape ecology. The author describes the specific spatial pattern of riparian vegetation as a result of, and a control on, the ecological, geomorphological, and hydrological processes that operate along rivers. He also discusses the role of the riparian zone in controlling species distribution and abundance and highlights the intelligent management of these valuable ecological resources. Finally, Malanson explores the potential for linking hydrological, geomorphological and ecological simulation models.

    • Of interest to workers in a wide variety of disciplines
    • Area becoming more important in these times of falling water levels and river drying
    • More theoretical and international than the competing text

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...a useful and convincing presentation of riparian landscapes....methodically brings together seemingly disparate physical processes into a comprehensible overview of riparian landscape patterns. Riparian Landscapes is the best available synthetic view of riparian environments and provides an important conceptual leap beyond most other treatments of biological-physical interactions in floodplain habitats. It is an important reference for anyone interested in stream-side or bottomland ecosystems." David Shankman, Annals of the Association of American Geographers

    " was an imaginative experience to read this book....Ample information and inspiration may be drawn from this book." Jeanette van der Sman, Trends in Ecology and Evolution

    "What Malanson contributes to this debate in this valuable work is a detailed analysis of the ecological and hydrological structure and dynamics of riparian ecotones both as functional units and as an integral part of the wider catchment landscape....The text is well worth the price...and is required reading for all those interested in riparian landscapes." P.J. Johnes, Journal of Biogeography

    "...the quality of the review together with the number of citations make this book a useful possession." Gilles Pinay, Ecoscience
