The view encompasses more than 2000 kilometers from the river junction in the lower part of the picture to just below the Qena-Luxor bend, at the left upper end. The photograph was taken before the Aswan High Dam basin began to rise. The Red Sea and Saudi Arabia and the Ethiopian Highlands form the background. For the present state of the Dam basin see fig. 72. Courtesy of NASA. INTRODUCTION This book is an attempt to bring together information on the biology of the Nile. A big library could be filled by books on this river devoted to exploration and discovery, human history and hydrology. None has so far been written on the biology of the whole river system.
