The Missouri River Ecosystem, a new report from the National Research Council, looks at how dam building and other human activities have affected the ecology of the Missouri River and its basin, and recommends changes to the management of the river in an effort to restore its natural ecosystem.
These briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on January 9, 2002, and can be found, in its entirety, online through the Web site of the National Academies Press.
