Lakes across the globe require help. The Lake Restoration Handbook: A New Zealand Perspective addresses this need through a series of chapters that draw on recent advances in modelling and monitoring tools, citizen science and First Peoples' roles, catchment and lake-focused restoration techniques, and policy implementation. New Zealand lakes, like lakes across the globe, are subject to multiple pressures that have increased in severity and scale as land use has intensified, invasive species have spread and global climate change becomes manifest. This books builds on the popular Lake Managers Handbook (1987), which provided guidance on undertaking investigations into, and understanding lake ecosystems in New Zealand. The Lake Restoration Handbook: A New Zealand Perspective synthesises contemporary issues related to lake restoration and rehabilitation, integrated with social science and cultural viewpoints, and complemented by authoritative topic-area summaries by renowned scientists and practitioners from across the globe. The book examines the progress of lake restoration and the new and emerging tools available to managers for predicting and effecting change. The book will be a valuable resource for natural and social scientists, policy writers, lake managers, and anyone interested in the health of lake ecosystems.

Övrig information

David Hamilton is Deputy Directory at the Australian Rivers Institute at Griffith University. He held the Bay of Plenty Chair in Lake Restoration at the University of Waikato, New Zealand for 15 years and led a major lake restoration programme designed to provide the underpinning research to address algal blooms and incursions of invasive fish. This programme provided the impetus for the current book. Hamilton is an associated editor on two international journals and has led several special issues of scientific journals. He has also held a position at the University of Western Australia where he developed and applied models of lake water quality. Kevin Collier is a freshwater ecologist at the University of Waikato who has worked across the science-management interface for over 30 years. He has previously co-edited books synthesising ecological knowledge of New Zealand freshwater invertebrates (2000) and the country's longest river, the Waikato River (2010). He is associate editor on two international journals. John Quinn is an aquatic ecologist who has been Chief Scientist for Freshwater and Estuaries at NIWA since 2015. Over the previous 20 years, he led cross-institute, interdisciplinary, research programmes on river, lake and estuary restoration, river ecosystems and land use interactions and managing forest harvest impacts on streams. He has been a guest editor of two special issues of scientific journals focused on the outputs of these programmes. Clive Howard-Williams is currently Chief Science Advisor (Natural Resources) at New Zealand's National Institute for Water and Atmospheric Research. He has published widely on freshwater ecosystems from tropical to polar regions, and has led research programmes on wetland, lake and estuarine ecosystems. He has also been involved in freshwater consultancy work on freshwater restoration. Clive has been the guest editor of several books and journal special issues related to aquatic ecology.


Lake Restoration Handbook: A New Zealand Perspective Editors David Hamilton Kevin Collier Clive Howard-Williams John Quinn Preface Bill Vant - changes since the Lake Manager's Handbook A. INTRODUCTION Chapter 1: Context for restoration - David Hamilton, John Quinn, Clive Howard-Williams, Kevin Collier Handling editor: Kevin Collier Abstract (<200 words and be followed by at least 5 keywords) Introductory comments * Defining what we mean by restoration, values * Managing for multiple uses (and lakes vs reservoirs) * Context: 1987 LMH and what has changed since? Need for restoration. * Who carries out restoration? Who funds restoration? * What is the enabling environment? Include models of governance (e.g. co-governance) * Brief introduction to the policy and regulatory environment (and end with something specific to NZ - MfE, RCs, DCs, NGOs) International perspectives * Major issues globally (blooms, weeds, hydrology/storage and climate change, invasives, legacy nutrients) * Examples of international policies, e.g. WFD, TMDL * Approaches taken (align with issues), include catchment vs in-lake * Monitoring approaches to measure success * Involving citizens Introduction to chapters * Issues (eutrophication, invasives, multiple uses and objectives, policy and regulatory environment); use of models as decision support tools; dealing with the catchment (long-term essential approach); specific in-lake approaches. Sum up * Set the scene for the concluding chapter of the book. Proposed international feature box contributors: * 1.1 Brian Moss - The philosophy of restoration * Justin Brooks - An Australian perspective: policies and practices enabling lake restoration B.< MANAGEMENT AND MODELLING Chapter 2: Modelling for catchment management - Aroon Parshotam & Dale Robertson Handling editor: David Hamilton Abstract (<200 words and be followed by at least 5 keywords) Introduction Review of catchment modelling in NZ * e.g. BNZ, CREAMS, GLEAMS * Recent big catchment modelling projects (e.g. Tauranga Harbour, South-Eastern Manukau Harbour) Assumptions * Broad assumptions of all catchment models (eg. Semi-distributed, etc.) * GIS layers that are generally used (soils, landuse, slopes, climate) What models can be used for * Identify hotspots, climate change, soil erodibility...) * Types of landuses and what we expect from the various landuses * Review of Tools (eg. CLUES and OVERSEER) Stakeholder organisations and role Modelling for management purposes Limitation of models * groundwater, spatial variability, assumptions Future Prospects Proposed international feature box contributors: * Richard Alexander (TBC) * Other (TBC) Chapter 3: In-lake modelling for restoration - David Hamilton, John Quinn, Chris McBride Handling editor: Clive Howard-Williams Abstract (<200 words and be followed by at least 5 keywords) Introduction * What do we mean by modelling? * Brief introduction to types of models available (deterministic, Bayesian, neural networks) * How do we use models for management purposes? * Focus mostly on deterministic models in this chapter Types of models * Deterministic * Bayesian * Neural networks Data requirements (primarily oriented to deterministic models) * Climate data * Hydrological data * In-lake data (inc. satellite data)
