Description:

The US Geological Survey's Long Term Resource Monitoring Program (LTRMP) and the Upper Midwest Environmental Sciences Center produced this report, containing "information about the ecological condition of the Upper Mississippi River System (UMRS)," especially during the late 1980s. Comprised of sixteen chapters and a glossary, the report (.pdf format) covers "Floodplain River Ecology and the Concept of River Ecological Health," "Important Milestones in the Human and Ecological History of the Upper Mississippi River System," "River Geomorphology and Floodplain Habitats," "Hydrology, Water and Sediment Quality," and the river system's flora and fauna, from "Submersed Aquatic Vegetation" through "Birds." Two case studies ("The Illinois River," and "The Flood of 1993") round out the report.
