'A superb book' - David Bellamy
'Gorgeous AND authoritative - a wonderful combination' - Andrew Motion
'This very attractive fact-filled and beautifully illustrated book by two widely respected river ecologists, describes the natural and not-so-natural changes to our rivers since the last ice age and brings us right up to date by citing some of the contentious issues relating to flood control and how rivers might be better managed and cared for now and in the future. It includes chapters on the many plants, amphibians, fish, birds and other animals that live in, on or along side our rivers and there are excellent, in depth, case studies of three very different rivers - the Meon, Dee and Endrick.' - The BTO (British Trust for Ornithology)
'It is some time since I read a book so crammed with information. What is more, it does not just dip into rivers, but covers the whole riparian habitat and associated wildlife as well. Add to this the past and present problems faced by rivers, coupled with recommendations for their future management and you can begin to see why it is full of fascinating material. Highly recommended.'- Gamewise (Magazine of the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust)
'This is the third volume in a new series which I would urge readers to get as this could be start of the most important series of wildlife books to come out for many years ... this is as good an account as I can remember reading on this vexed subject.' --Ray Collier, Highland News
'An inviting book with informative content complemented by a mixture of photos, diagrams and tables. The pictures are fantastic throughout, not only in their quality but also in their use. Each image has been chosen with extreme care ... Rivers is enjoyable and well written. Unlike many within the genre, it feels like a complete book instead of a series of chapters on different subjects. Each chapter contributes to the overall theme and story, everything is relevant. It also looks fantastic and you could easily find yourself flicking through as well as reading from cover to cover.' - The River Restoration Centre
'A tour de force ... it is part of the British Wildlife Collection, a prerequisite for the serious conservationist and interested layman alike.' - The Scotsman
