This succinct book gives an intimate view of the day-to-day functioning of a remarkable river that has figured prominently in history and culture―the Hudson, a main artery connecting New York, America, and the world. Writing for a wide audience, David Strayer distills the large body of scientific information about the river into a non-technical overview of its ecology. Strayer describes the geography and geology of the Hudson and its basin, the properties of water and its movements in the river, water chemistry, and the river’s plants and animals. He then takes a more detailed look at the Hudson’s ecosystems and each of its major habitats. Strayer also discusses important management challenges facing the river today, including pollution, habitat destruction, overfishing, invasive species, and ecological restoration.

From the Inside Flap:

“It is hard for scientists to write about their work with simplicity and clarity. It is even more rare for it to be a good yarn. In The Hudson Primer, Strayer does both in a book that is highly readable, succinct, and still rigorous and comprehensive. Excellent reading for any parent who wants to play knowledgeably in a river with their child, for any resident who wants to understand recent and ongoing environmental management controversies, or for any lifelong student who just wants to know more about how rivers work.”--Emily Bernhardt, Duke University

“Strayer's clear writing brings to life the Hudson as a living, breathing ecosystem that is at once captivating and vulnerable. River science becomes a story that is a must-read for those who care about the Hudson.”--Margaret A. Palmer, University of Maryland

David L. Strayer is Senior Scientist at the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies.
