Symposium Summary and Conclusions
The primary purpose of these proceedings is to document the extent of stream regulation and resulting ecological ramifications on lotic systems, and to provide directions for further research. Although stated in the introductory chapter, it should be emphasized that the intention was to avoid an advocacy stance in this volume. Because this is the first symposium dealing specifically with the ecology of stream reaches below dams, it was deemed appropriate to approach the subject with scientific objectivity insofar as possible, which is not to imply that the editors and authors do not have strong personal feelings regarding stream regulation.
