About this book

In the U.S., both federal and state laws prevent wetlands from being filled in or drained unless permits are obtained by an agency of the federal government. Boundaries of a wetland must be identified and located in the field by examining three parameters: wetland plants, wetland hydrology, and hydric soils. Wetland Soils is written by scientists with extensive field and academic experience. This new edition is a major revision of the 2001 book, with 11 new chapters and updates throughout.
