课程主要内容

Globally, many countries face the prospect of inadequate supplies of clean water—another form of liquid gold with a soaring market value. This potential crisis, which continues to worsen with expanding populations and the concentration of these populations in cities, has been exacerbated by degradation of our riverine landscapes. In a quest to obtain water, humans have until very recently ignored the plight of vital riverine ecosystems and have dammed and channelized rivers, abstracted excessive amounts of water (sometimes eliminating flow altogether), altered the natural flow regime, introduced destructive exotic species, cleared the riparian woodlands, urbanized catchments and discharged toxic wastes and inorganic nutrients into their waters. As a result, relatively natural or pristine segments of small to large rivers are increasingly rare throughout much of the world, making it a formidable task to study and manage rivers without a broader, often global perspective on how systems function in natural and altered conditions.

Conserving and managing riverine ecosystems while ensuring adequate supplies of clean water for human use requires a thorough understanding of the structure and functioning of these ecosystems, from small streams to great rivers and from main channels to floodplains. This is a challenging task because scientists know relatively less about large rivers than either lakes or wetlands, and river scientists tend to be scattered very widely within and among nations. Building capacity and developing younger river scientists is a key role of the International Society for River Science (ISRS) in order to meet the challenge of understanding and managing large river ecosystems.
