A case study of an iconic New Zealand river. It is of great cultural and spiritual significance, has considerable economic and recreational value, and provides a place to live for a wide variety of plants and animals. This book tells a story of this rivergass physical and chemical environment and the life it supports, from the turbulent blue waters at the outlet of New Zealandgass largest lake down to the tidal waters of the river delta. It is a contemporary synthesis of current scientific knowledge of the river, and will provide a reference for river managers, policy makers, students and the interested public.
