About this book

An understanding of environmental gradients is fundamental to the delineation of wetland boundaries. Only when boundaries are determined can an appropriate `buffer' between the wetland and its surrounding area be established, and conservation and management practices properly initiated. This book focuses on current research and techniques in the discipline.
