Watershed Restoration Information

RESOURCE – New Publication from the National Academy of Sciences

There is a publication soon to be released by the National Academy of Science. It is called Riparian Areas: Functions and Strategies for Management by the NAS Committee on Riparian Zone Functioning and Strategies for Management, Water Science and Technology Board, Board on Environmental Studies and Toxicology, National Research Council 400 pages (approximate), 8 1/2 x 11, 2002.

A prepublication verion is available to read on line. You can preorder a copy from their website. NAS publcations tend to be excellent on technical content and detail. The usual missing piece is for advocacy groups to take the information and put it to use toward improving policy. Rarely does that get done. You can find other NAS pubs at http://www.nap.edu/index.html
