Wetlands are prominent landscapes throughout North America. This book provides both a systematic assessment of varied types of wetlands in different parts of North America and a compendium of the threats to wetland conservation. Wetland habitats of North America adopts a geographic and habitat approach, in which experts familiar with wetlands from across North America provide analyses and syntheses of their particular regions of study. Addressing a broad audience of students, scientists, engineers, environmental managers, and policy makers, this book reviews recent scientifically rigorous literature directly relevant to understanding, managing, protecting, and restoring wetland ecosystems of North America.
