Together with its companion volume 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.
From the reviews: "The comprehensive book represents a successful mixture of contributions valuable for scientists as well as for decision makers dealing with wetland conservation and restoration. ! the book is qualified for both, readers interested in getting a general survey of a specific topic and experts interested in picking up new detailed information. ! All in all I recommend this book particularly because ! chapters are reviews containing a lot of valuable information. The price is adequate." (Joachim Schrautzer, Phytocoenologia, Vol. 38 (1-2), August, 2008)
