schema:reviewBody""Rivers of North America represents the first comprehensive treatment of North America's rivers, from Southern Mexico to the Arctic. Written by professional biologists and river scientists, the text allows readers to compare systems throughout the continent. Each chapter focuses on a specific basin or region and details its physical, chemical, and biological aspects including human impacts, dam building, water diversions, and pollution. Within these chapters, over 200 rivers are highlighted in one-page summaries. Extensively illustrated with over 180 color photographs and 218 maps/figures, this book will be a primary reference for students in freshwater biology, stream and river ecology, fish and wildlife biology, as well as for river scientists, managers, conservationists, fishermen, and anyone who recognizes the importance of these freshwater ecosystems."--Jacket."
