Committee on Wetlands Characterization, National Research Council
An exploration of how to define wetlands, a difficult job since the proposed alteration of their legal definition in 1991. The committee, who were made up of US Government officials, academics, business people, and members of the environmental community, have sought to build up a rational, scientific basis for delineating wetlands in the landscape and offer recommendations for further action. Moreover, the committee has also examined the controversial no-net-loss policy, and discuss how wetlands are gained and lost, as well as how well restoration efforts have succeeded. A comprehensive and practical volume.
