Reference Relationship to Restoring Riverscapes
2005. Brierley, G. and Fryirs, K.: Geomorphology and River Management: Applications of the River Styles Framework, Blackwell Publishing, Victoria, Australia. DOI: 10.1002/9780470751367 Both a basic introductory text to fluvial geomorphology for understanding riverscapes (via the River Styles framework), and an approach to managing and restoring riverscapes based on a respect and appreciation for the diversity of riverscapes and the different processes that go along with each.
1934. Kraebel, C. J. and Pillsbury, A. F.: Handbook of Erosion Control in Mouuntain Meadows, U.S. Forest Service, California Forest and Range Experiment Station, Berkeley, CA, 69 pp. Well before terms of ‘process-based restoration’ were coined, this publication from the USFS in the 1930s provides extensive guidelines on low-tech structures and idea of using process to restore degraded meadows.
2018. Maestas, J. D., Conner, S., Zeedyk, B., Neely, B., Rondeau, R., N. Seward, Chapman, T., With, L., and Murph., R. Hand-built structures for restoring degraded meadows in sagebrush rangelands: Examples and lessons learned from the Upper Gunnison River Basin, Colorado. USDA, Natural Resource Conservation Service, Denver, CO, 47 pp. Provides introduction to use of low-tech structures like Zuni Bowls and one-rock-dams in ephemeral and intermittent streams for meadow restoration.
2018. Pollock, M. M., Lewallen, G., Woodruff, K., Jordan, C. E., and Castro, J. M. (Eds.) The Beaver Restoration Guidebook: Working with Beaver to Restore Streams, Wetlands, and Floodplains. Version 2.01, United States Fish and Wildlife Service, Portland, OR. Provides guidance on using the ecosystem engineering expertise of beaver to help restore riverscapes. Includes guidelines on translocation, and introduction of idea of beaver dam analogues.
2013. Roni, P. and Beechie, T. (Eds.): Stream and Watershed Restoration: A Guide to Restoring Riverine Processes and Habitats. Wiley, Chichester, U.K.. DOI: 10.1002/9781118406618 An edited volume on process-based restoration.
2011. Skidmore, P. B., Thorne, C. R., Cluer, B. L., Pess, G. R., Castro, J. M., Beechie, T. J., and Shea, C. C. Science base and tools for evaluating stream engineering, management, and restoration proposals. U.S. Department of Commerce, Seattle, WA, 255 pp. Useful screening and evaluation questions at planning and permitting stages. Includes the River RAT (Restoration Assessment Tool).
2018. Yochum, S. E. Guidance for stream restoration and rehabilitation. US Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, National Stream and Aquatic Ecology Center. Technical Note no. TN-102.4, 2016. A recent, regularly updated and rather comprehensive review and annotated bibliography of various aspects of stream restoration and rehabilitation what includes many process-based restoration examples (e.g., beaver, LWD).
2009. Zeedyk, B. and Clothier, V. Let the Water Do the Work: Induced Meandering, an Evolving Method for Restoring Incised Channels. Island Press, Washington D.C. The idea of using structures that promote processes of letting ‘the water do the work’ (in this case for initiating widening and meandering in incised channels) is a prime example of process-based restoration.
