About this book

Wetlands and riparian areas between the Rocky Mountains and the Sierra Nevada are incredibly diverse and valuable habitats. More than 80 percent of the wildlife species in this intermountain region depend on these wetlands-which account for less than 2 percent of the land area-for their survival. This book offers land managers, biologists, and research scientists a state-of-the-art survey of the ecology and management practices of wetland and riparian areas in the Intermountain West. Twelve articles examine such diverse issues as laws and regulations affecting these habitats, the unique physiographic features of the region, the importance of wetlands and riparian areas to fish, wildlife, and livestock, the ecological function of these areas, their value to humans, and the methods to evaluate these habitats.

Media reviews

I am not aware of any other books that cover both the subject matter and geographical area of this book... [Its] extensive references and detailed summaries provide a wealth of information for those interested in wetland management and ecology in the western United States.
