Substantive progress depends on a basic understanding of
associated landscape change, the soils and other geologic
materials on which aquatic and terrestrial communities
depend and the social contexts of water management.
The ability to manage riverine ecosystems
wisely occurs from:
collecting & interpreting reliable data on current and
past riverine conditions
identification of the fundamental and integrated
functions of the riverine
comprehension of the institutional and economic
processes of the riverine
forecasting the impact of environmental change and human
actions on the riverine and its aquatic communities
effectively communicating all information & study
results to resource-managers, policy-makers and the
