In For the Love of Rivers, Fausch illuminates the stream not only as an ecological community, but as an ecosystem interwoven into its surrounding forest through strong - yet hidden - connections among the creatures that inhabit this living tapestry
In For the Love of Rivers, Fausch draws on his international scientific experiences, and celebrates the friendships that have driven his most insightful shared discoveries, and endured the tragic loss of one of his closest colleagues
For the Love of Rivers explores the great diversity of life in rivers and the forests and grasslands they traverse, and how these communities are ultimately maintained through the complex connections that cross the boundaries between them
From the fishes of Great Plains rivers to the trout and charr of mountain streams in the U.S. and Japan, discoveries by Fausch and his colleagues have crossed biomes, continents, and cultures, and help the reader reach a global understanding of the meaning and value of these ecosystems.
Standing on a career's worth of scientific insights into the workings of rivers and the ways in which our societies have compromised these ecosystems, Fausch ultimately arrives at concerned questions about the future of our rivers, and the values that are so essential that they would lead us to conserve them
