Contents Notes
The influence of vertebrate herbivory on ecological dynamics in wetland ecosystems -- Wetland Functioning in Relation to Biodiversity Conservation and Restoration -- Functioning of Plants and Animals in Wetlands -- Plant Survival in Wet Environments: Resilience and Escape Mediated by Shoot Systems -- Center Stage: The Crucial Role of Macrophytes in Regulating Trophic Interactions in Shallow Lake Wetlands -- Biological Invasions: Concepts to Understand and Predict a Global Threat -- Conservation and Management of Wetlands -- Wetland Conservation and Management: Questions for Science and Society in Applying the Ecosystem Approach -- Wetlands in the Tidal Freshwater Zone -- Biodiversity in European Shallow Lakes: a Multilevel-Multifactorial Field Study -- River Basin Management to Conserve Wetlands and Water Resources -- Aspects of Adaptive Management of Coastal Wetlands: Case Studies of Processes, Conservation, Restoration, Impacts and Assessment -- Wetland Restoration and Creation -- Contrasting Approaches to the Restoration of Diverse Vegetation in Herbaceous Wetlands -- Fen Management and Research Perspectives: An Overview -- Social Learning in Wetland Development -- Eco-Hydrological Functioning of the Biebrza Wetlands: Lessons for the Conservation and Restoration of Deteriorated Wetlands. Together with its companion Volume 190 Wetlands and Natural Resource Management, this volume gives a broad and well-integrated overview of recent major scientific results in wetland science and their applications in natural resource management issues. After an introduction into the field, 12 chapters contributed by internationally known experts summarize the state of the art on a particular subject. They are divided into the following three sections: Functioning of Plants and Animals in Wetlands Conservation and Management of Wetlands Wetland Restoration and Creation. The volume is of interest to wetland scientists, natural resource managers, as well as policy makers.
