About this book

Freshwater ecosystems have the greatest species diversity per unit area. Freshwater Ecosystems in Protected Areas shows that, rather than a marginal part of protected area management, freshwater conservation is central to sustaining biodiversity. It focuses on better practices for conserving inland aquatic ecosystems in protected areas (PAs), including rivers, wetlands, swamps, other brackish and freshwater ecosystems, and coastal estuaries. The authors define inland aquatic ecosystems, showing just how diverse and widespread they are. They examine the principles and processes that are essential to conservation of freshwater ecosystems and aquatic species (often fundamentally different from terrestrial ecosystems). They introduce the threats to freshwater ecosystems and the flow-on implications for protected area design. Practical case studies are used to illustrate principles and practices applied around the world. Specific management needs of the main types of freshwater ecosystems are considered, as well as the management of freshwaters in the broader landscape, showing how nature resource governance processes can be harnessed to better manage freshwater biodiversity, and including how to adapt freshwater conservation practices to climate change.
