Contents Notes
"The classic wetlands textbook updated to embrace key changes in the field. For nearly three decades, Wetlands has been the premier text on wetlands for students and professionals worldwide. This comprehensive volume represents the current state of knowledge in wetland science, management, and restoration. In this Fifth Edition, substantial revisions and updates bring the book into alignment with the way wetland science and management is practiced today. New to this edition : five streamlined chapters on wetland ecosystems : tidal marshes, mangroves, freshwater marshes and swamps, and northern peatlands ; four heavily updated chapters on ecosystem services covering the interrelations among wetlands, society, and climate change ; updates on the world's most important wetlands, including new photos and case studies from North America, Europe, Asia, and beyond ; current list of key publications and references drawn from recent international wetland conferences. With this edition, Wetlands secures its place as the authoritative reference on the full range of issues that impact the world's fragile wetland environments."--taken from back cover.
