A trend in river science over the last 15 years has been the increased emphasis on larger systems. This has been refl ected in an expanding literature base describing the physical character and processes of large rivers. The 1989 special issue of Canadian Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences was one of the fi rst publications to deal specifi - cally with large river systems. Although papers from this symposium (Dodge, 1989) had a multidisciplinary focus, 11 of the 49 papers dealt with the form and process of large fl oodplain rivers. The geomorphological character of large lowland rivers was presented in Lowland Floodplain Rivers: Geomorphological Perspectives (Carling and Petts, 1992).
