"While in the Third Edition of Wetlands the authoritative coverage of its earlier editions has been retained, an enormous body of new material has been added, and every chapter has been revised to keep pace with rapid growth in scientific knowledge and important innovations in wetland ecology and management. Now in a larger, easier-to-read format, this wetland "bible" offers expanded coverage of everything from the role of crabs in mangrove swamps to the role of wetlands in global climate change. Important features of this new edition include a greater emphasis (and a new chapter) on wetlands of the world; expanded coverage of Canadian wetlands; a new chapter on wetlands laws and protection; improved, easy-to-read illustrations, many of them covering new material; new chapters on wetland creation and restoration, and treatment wetlands; new information and expanded coverage in every chapter; the latest information on gaseous emissions from wetlands; and updated theories and classifications of salt marshes, peatlands, forested swamps, and riparian ecosystems."--BOOK JACKET.
