(Re)envisioning Process-based Restoration

It is generally accepted that human activities have degraded ecosystem conditions and profoundly affected fisheries resources in rivers worldwide.  In recent decades, increased awareness and concern about the nature, intensity, and extensity of impacts has created inertia around river restoration efforts. In addition, there has been an evolution of thinking about the definitions and targets that might move a river ecosystem toward a restored state.  This symposium will bring together river and fish restoration researchers, practitioners, and managers to present their perspectives on and definitions of what process-based restoration is, and to see if we can arrive at a common thought model that combines the theoretical approach and goals, their practical application, and the effectiveness of results.
