For the Love of Rivers

A Scientist’s Journey

Oregon State University Press
Stream ecologist Kurt Fausch draws readers across the reflective
surface of streams to view and ponder how they work. While celebrating
their beauty and mystery, he explains the underlying science connecting
streamside forests with the organisms found there. More than a book
about stream ecology, For the Love of Rivers is a celebration of the
interconnectedness of life. It is an authoritative look at the science
of rivers and streams, but it also ponders the larger question of why
rivers are important to humans, why we should want to conserve them,
and what we can to ensure their future.
Kurt Fausch is a professor in the Department of Fish, Wildlife, and
Conservation Biology at Colorado State University. His collaborative
research experiences in Japan were chronicled in the PBS documentary
film RiverWebs.
