Written in an easily understood manner with the practitioner in mind, Watershed Health Monitoring balances the need for a detailed treatment of watershed health monitoring with the need for a concise, easy to use reference. It is the first book to recognize the multidisciplinary nature of successful monitoring programs-programs that go far beyond science. The focus of the text is a clear description of an innovative "Closed Loop" model that specifies four key aspects of successful monitoring programs: political linkages and support, sound scientific assessment techniques, a community education and awareness component; and a sustainable cost-recovery framework achieved through partnership.
