This important book brings together eighteen cutting-edge researchpapers first presented at the Second International Conference onBraided Rivers. It includes the latest research on the dynamics,deposits and ecology of these rivers.
* Essential reading for geomorphologists, earth scientists,engineers and ecologists with a pure and applied interest in thestudy, modelling and management of braided rivers.
