Rivers of the United States by Ruth Patrick( Book )

17 editions published between 1994 and 2003 in English and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Riverine systems are the most important source of potable surface waters for human beings and other animals that inhabit this planet. Despite this, very few books have been written concerning the species that form the ecosystems through which nutrients and energies are transferred. It is the functioning of those ecosystems that maintains the quality of water suitable for the use of those organisms. This series brings together information on primary and secondary production, detritus processing, species found and their distribution, by focusing on the whole community and how it functions, not omitting how human usage has affected these ecosystems. This series of books should be valuable to students and researchers on the structure and factors affecting the functioning of ecosystems in riverine systems. For the planner and the conservationist, the information contained within offers an opportunity for sustainable, correct management of development near riverine and estuary systems

Welfare reform in the United Kingdom has been underway for years now, but there has been little reflection on how it has been experienced and thought about by the people who are directly affected by it.

12 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Describes the organisms that compose the structure and function in the ecosystems in each river that make possible the conversion of waste into energy and food and hence transfer to other organisms the nutrients that were originally tied up in wastes ... The criterion for selecting habitats in a stream for description was that a natural functioning ecosystem was operative: in other words, that they have not been altered by the effects of pollution or by manmade structures. In the case of the Mississippi River, it was impossible to find an area that was not affected by dams or pollution. Therefore, the book considers areas between dams where the flow of the river approaches natural conditions ... In this treatment of the Mississippi Drainage, there are many different types of water ... Chemical characteristics greatly influence the type of fauna and flora that are present"--Preface
