About this book

Natural ecosystems are heavily dependent on water, as it is essential to the development of life. The ecology and landscape play an important role in the quality and availability of water. It is no coincidence that exceptional hydrological phenomena are found in protected areas. Such is the case with, for example, the geothermic occurrences in America's Yellowstone National Park, The Iguacu Falls (on the border of Argentina and Brazil) and the Zapata Swamp in Cuba.

However, in many cases, the conservation strategies for hydraulic resources in protected areas are ignored, or simply deprived of the attention they require. There are many types of suitable management strategies for planning and protecting our valuable treasures.

Management of Water Resources in Protected Areas examines water conservation in protected areas and discusses a broad range of issues from human impact to risks and management. It places hydraulic management as a cornerstone of conservation.
