University of Arizona Press, Briggs, M.K. and W.R. Osterkamp. 2020     This guidebook builds on what came before, developing it as both a guidance 'how to' as well as a reference. Where restoration topics are well-documented and well-traveled, we offer references. Where not, we offer detailed guidance on how to develop a stream restoration response start to finish.
Abstract Fifteen federal agencies are developing a of stream corridor restoration planning and design technology document to serve as a common reference for field resource managers and other technical specialists. Offering a scientific perspective, the document will emphasize least intrusive solutions that are ecologically derived and self sustaining.
From Natural to Degraded Rivers and Back Again: A test of restoration ecology theory and practice (Feld et al. 2011); in Advances in Ecological Research - Elsevier Press.   Summary Extensive degradation of ecosystems, combined with the increasing demands placed on the goods and services they provide, is a major driver of biodiversity loss on a global scale.
Stream Hydrology: An introduction for Ecologists (Gordon et al. 2004) - John Wiley & Sons.   Available for purchase here:   Since the publication of the first edition (1994) there have been rapid developments in the application of hydrology, geomorphology and ecology to stream management.
Stream Channel Reference Sites: An illustrated guide to field technique (Harrelson et al. 1994) - USDA Forest Service   This document is a guide to establishing permanent reference sites for gathering data about the physical characteristics of streams and rivers. The minimum procedure consists of the following: (1) select a site, (2) map the site and location, (3) measure the channel cross-section, (4) survey a longitudinal profile of the channel, (5) measure streamflow, (6) measure bed material, and (7) permanently file the information with the Vigil network.
Our rivers are in crisis and the need for river restoration has never been more urgent. Water security and biodiversity indices for all of the world’s major rivers have declined due to pollution, diversions, impoundments, fragmented flows, introduced and invasive species, and many other abuses.   Developing successful restoration responses are essential. Renewing Our Rivers addresses this need head-on with examples of how to design and implement stream-corridor restoration projects.

A Guide to Enhancing Rivers, Streams and Desert Washes for Birds and Other Wildlife.

Produced by Tucson Audubon Society, Audubon Arizona, and Arizona Game and Fish.

This groundbreaking new publication from the Society for Ecological Restoration provides updated and expanded guidance on the practice of ecological restoration, clarifies the breadth of ecological restoration and allied environmental repair activities, and includes ideas and input from a diverse international group of restoration scientists and practitioners.

Bioengineering practices provide resiliency for streambanks, enhance wildlife habitat, enhance organic matter inputs to streams, improve water quality, increase floodplain roughness, and heighten landscape aesthetics so important to countless residents, visitors, and businesses.

Abstract:  Throughout the world, the condition of many riparian ecosystems has declined due to numerous factors, including encroachment of non-native species. In the western United States, millions of dollars are spent annually to control invasions of Tamarix spp., introduced small trees or shrubs from Eurasia that have colonized bottomland ecosystems along many rivers. Resource managers seek to control Tamarix in attempts to meet various objectives, such as increasing water yield and improving wildlife habitat.
