Description :
This paper reviews recent changes in river management. These changes are characterised by a move from the notion of rivers as stable equilibrium forms to one of dynamic responsive ecosystems. Palaeohydrology is shown to be capable of providing important and relevant information to river managers. Furthermore a series of emerging frameworks for incorporating geomorphology in river management exist wherein palaeohydrological data and analysis can be directly interfaced with the river management process.
