About this book

The Biology of Aquatic and Wetland Plants is thorough and up to date textbook for aquatic and wetland plant biology. Aquatic plants occupy a crucially important role in maintaining ecosystem health. They are natural biological filters in freshwater and estuarine wetlands; they contribute to the reproductive success of many organisms including those that are harvested for food; they assist in flood control; and they are prominent elements in the aesthetic and recreational factors of freshwater and estuarine habitats. Additional topics covered in The Biology of Aquatic and Wetland Plants include population genetics, evolutionary ecology, landscape ecology, and climate change.
