Chapter 1 (Page no: 1)

Introducing river tourism: physical, ecological and human aspects.

This chapter examines various issues associated with the structure and operation of rivers before developing a framework to describe and understand river-based tourism. It commences with a discussion about aspects of the water cycle and fluvial hydrology. Following this, the discussion turns to river ecology to create a foundation for understanding how the ecosystems that often form a significant component of tourism use fluvial systems to operate and are affected by human use. The chapter then examines elements of the tourism-river interface before specifically examining issues related to tourism's use of river systems.
