Through the support of private donors, members and the City of Stamford, the Collaborative guides the long-term development of Mill River Park as a vibrant, evolving greenspace where the community can. A major shift in thinking about environmental flows emerged in the early s, when river scientists concerned about the limitations of existing water-allocation methods (then termed “in-stream flow methods”) increasingly made the case for a broader approach to sustain and conserve river ecosystems rather than just a few target species.

The process identified (1) trends in environmental alteration for the Connecticut River mainstem and (2) potential reservoir management changes to reduce environmental alteration while analyzing changes in hydropower generation.

The Mill River in particular was extensively dammed during the Industrial Revolution, when factories and mills began to spring up along its banks. However, because most of these no longer work and their dams are deteriorating, they are increasingly being removed, according to Paul Wetzel of the Center for the Environment, Ecological Design, and.

About Issues in Ecology Issues in Ecology is designed to report, in language understandable by non-scientists, the consensus of a panel of scientific experts on issues relevant to the environment.

Environmental Flows describes the timing, quality, and quantity of water flows required to sustain freshwater and estuarine ecosystems and the human well-being and livelihoods that depend upon them.

It answers crucial questions about the flow of water within and between different kinds of ecosystems. What happens when the flow or the availability of water is curtailed or diverted, either. We organize our education programs and activities around the following top 10 environmental issues.

These ideas guide our practice of environmentally responsible behaviors at each of our locations.

Global Environmental Change offers a strategy for combining the efforts of natural and social scientists to better understand how our actions influence global change and how global change influences us. The volume is accessible to the nonscientist and provides a wide range of examples and case studies.

River ecosystems (riverscapes) encompass ecological, social, and economic processes (ecosystem functions) that interconnect organisms (ecosystem structure), including humans, over some time period.

The ecosystem boundaries are permeable with respect to energy and materials flux; therefore, even large systems are influenced by external events such as global climate change, pollution, national.

Trends in fences. Fences are notorious for challenging wildlife by restricting migrations and limiting contact among populations.

As political leaders in the U.S. and Europe make plans to build more border fences to limit movement of our own species across national boundaries, scientists are assessing implications for wolves, sheep, bears, birds and more.

"The wealth of science and literature in the book renders it a useful summary and reference for aquatic and watershed researchers, and most of the concepts and applications extend beyond the lessons to be learned from the history, conceptual paradigms, research findings, and management approaches presented in this book are many.
