By Martin J. Attrill

The good documented historical past of toxins and restoration within the Thames Estuary has made the method one of many world's most renowned case reviews. notwithstanding, the tale is incomplete by way of the prestige of the
rehabilitated atmosphere because of the remedial administration guidelines. What surroundings may we think to get over a as soon as dead estuary? have the broad efforts made through coverage makers, environmental managers and
scientists led to a various, advanced estuary that is a version for different platforms? This publication attracts jointly many targeted features of the convalescing Thames Estuary atmosphere from environmental administration and
medical resources. the result's the most entire account of the administration and ecology of a unmarried estuarine method but produced. It comprises very important and large long-term reports of the fish
groups, water caliber and administration coverage, spatial money owed alongside the complete size of the estuary for benthic invertebrates and algae, major case stories on zooplankton, saltmarshes and parasitology, in addition as
an summary awaiting the subsequent millennium. Altogether, this learn of the longer term ecological effects of administration coverage offers a benchmark for comparability with different estuarine ecosystems, either `natural'
and rehabilitated, and types a specific and invaluable reference for environmental managers, estuarine scientists and ecologists.
