“I highly recommend the landmark and very accessible book Gravel Bed Rivers: Processes, Tools, Environments edited by Michael Church, Pascale Biron, and André Roy, to any river engineers, geomorphologists, environmental groups, policy makers, industry leaders, river managers, and advanced students who are seeking a complete overview of the latest knowledge in the processes, tools, and environments of gravel-bed rivers. This book provides the most comprehensive and authoritative collection of information and research available, and is definitely a landmark publication.” (Blog Business World, 7 February 2012)
