About this book

Recent scientific development and politico-institutional experiences related to the conservation of the South-American Pantanal are explored in Tropical Wetland Management in relation to what is happening in other tropical wetland areas of international importance such as the Everglades in North America and the Okavango in Africa, as well as considering the European experience. An interdisciplinary group of authors examines the need to establish a constructive dialogue between scientists, policy-makers and local stakeholders and outline a future research agenda, including consideration of the impacts of climate change and the pressures of regional development, for wetland management.

Media reviews

"The 12 chapters of this book have been written by over 50 experts. Their manuscripts show how they lived a dedicated life of researching, characterising, campaigning and promoting sustainable management in this unique part of the world.This book deserves wider attention than this of wetland management experts alone. It has documentary and didactical value for students in environmental, interdisciplinary and management sciences. It offers excellent material for decision-makers in nature conservation issues. It provides intriguing examples for all those dealing with involving local stakeholders in constructive environmental debates."
