About this book

Wetland ecosystems and the amazing diversity of plants and animals that inhabit them are thought to be more threatened than any other ecosystem. The Okavango Delta, as the world's largest inland delta, is no exception. This book, published for World Wetlands Day, is both a celebration of the diversity of aquatic life in the Okavango Delta, and is an inspiration to decision makers throughout the region to work together to ensure the survival of one of the world's most beautiful and valuable wetlands. Few natural places in the world offer so much value to people in combination with such aesthetic appeal.

Beginning with an explanation of the functioning of the Delta, the book describes (with the aid of many excellent graphics), the catchment areas in Angola and the passage of the Okavango River through Namibia, and goes on to reveal the physical, hydrological and ecological processes governing the working of the Delta itself. Subsequent chapters reveal the value of the Delta in terms of its diversity of plants and animals, and their use and reliance by people is revealed through many wonderful photographs and descriptions. Finally, current and future threats to the Delta are reviewed, and a range of management actions for ensuring the future of the Delta are discussed.
