Resistance versus resilience
Since people first began attempting to manipulate rivers to increase the benefits they could gain there have been two distinct management approaches. They can be described broadly as resistance and resilience. One involves working to control rivers and the other as working with rivers. The benefits of the former are usually more immediate and larger than are those of the latter. In the second case benefits are not only longer in coming they are also more diffuse and harder to identify.
