Media reviews
'This edited volume paints, in remarkable detail, the broad spectrum of wetland rehabilitation efforts world-wide, at the same time illustrating the ecological principles that operate in wetlands and affect wetland response to conservation efforts.' Jan Keough, President, Society of Wetland Scientists 'In the words of one of the authors, much of the most valuable data on wetland rehabilitation never gets published. This volume brings together data and analyses of wetland rehabilitation from around the world. It will be invaluable to practicing wetland scientists.' John Teal, author of Life and Death of the Salt Marsh 'An International Perspective on Wetland Rehabilitation is a timely addition to wetlands literature. Wetland managers, scientists and practitioners around the world will find this publication provides a very useful insight into wetland restoration and creation at the international level.' Kevin L. Erwin, Ecologist and Wetland Restoration Specialist, Group Coordinator for Wetlands International 'This is an excellent book, with an excellent collection and selection of material covering the most significant aspects of wetland rehabilitation on a worldwide scale. It demonstrates that no universal strategy or decision which may be succesfully applied to wetland rehabilitation in different natural, environmental and socio-economic conditions can be established. Nevertheless, the book provides invaluable information for environmental scientists, managers, engineers, planners and decision-makers, students and the general public. It contributes significantly to the more thorough understanding of various aspects of the wetland rehabilitation problem, as well as to promoting the international exchange of information and experience concerning wetland rehabilitation.' Bulletin, 50:4 (2001)
