Description/Abstract

Few sources exist to draw generalizations about the incredibly diverse international river
restoration community. Generalizations in the restoration literature tend to be grounded
on individual experiences or logical conjecture. To fill this perceived gap, an international
web-based survey was launched. Over 500 respondents from 37 different
countries participated. The results, posted on the web, act as a database of perceptions
and individual experiences, from which the restoration community can make their own
interpretations. With three examples, we contrast scientific conjecture with the
perceptions of the restoration community who participated in this survey.
