Contents Notes
Wetlands and science -- Integrated modelling and assessment -- Theoretical framework and method of integrated study -- The Vecht area : history, problems and policy -- Development scenarios for the Vecht area -- The spatial-ecological model : hydrology and ecology -- The spatial-economic model : agriculture, nature conservation and outdoor recreation -- Performance indicators for the evaluation -- Evaluation of the scenarios -- Conclusions : policy and research implications. "An applied, integrated assessment of spatial wetland management in the Netherlands, namely for the Vecht area between the cities of Amsterdam and Utrecht, is presented. This assessment has resulted in a set of linked hydrological, ecological and economic models, formulated at the level of grids and polders, and various types of evaluations and rankings of scenarios. The results indicate the value of maintaining spatial detail for as long as possible." "Written to encompass aspects of both the natural and social sciences pertinent to environmental management, the book will satisfy readers from both areas seeking sustainable solutions at a regional scale."--Jacket.
