The River Styles® framework and principles of fluvial geomorphology have been published in a book (in 2005) by Gary Brierley and Kirstie Fryirs. The book is titled “Geomorphology and River Management: Applications of the River Styles Framework” and is published by Blackwell Publishing. This e-book is designed to be a companion piece to that book, demonstrating how the principles of fluvial geomorphology and the River Styles® framework can be applied in its entirety to provide a geomorphic template for river management.
