About the Author:

Piet Nienhuis (Groningen, 29 October 1938) passed through an international career of 40 years as researcher (biologist, ecologist) and research leader at the Netherlands Royal Academy of Arts and Sciences, and as professor and director at the Radboud University Nijmegen (the Netherlands) and the Free University Brussels (Belgium). He was chairman and advisor of services of the European Commission and several Dutch governmental departments. He published hundreds of scientific publications, mainly devoted to ecology and environmental sciences, in particular to estuarine and river ecology and management. After his retirement in 2003 he continued his writing activities, together with his editorial and advisory work.

Review:

From the reviews:

"This is a substantial ... book dealing with the delta of the Rhine and Meuse Rivers. ... The book claims to be the first English language book integrating the environmental history of the Delta. ... the target audience to be specialists in this area of environmental science. ... students of ecology would also benefit from dipping into the interesting case studies if they can find it in the library." (Owen Jones, Bulletin of the British Ecological Society, Vol. 40 (1), 2009)
