About this book

A collection of papers which have a threefold purpose: to explore and explain the evolution, occurrence and composition of wetlands and their physical and biological dynamics; to consider the impact upon them of agriculture, industry, urbanization and recreation; and to examine what steps are being and should be taken to manage and preserve them.

Media reviews
This is a handsome book on an important subject. Environment and Planning "A great mine of information, assembled by a distinguished group of authors ... provides a solid background to the wetland debate m... the main strength of the book certainly is its breadth ... this is a remarkably wide-ranging compendium of knowledge." Nature "The book is enriched with stunning black and white photographs which have been intelligently selected and carefully presented. In the unlikely event of the text not convincing, the photographs and illustrations alone should have the desired impact. Wetlands is a book to have on your bookshelf if you are a working conservationist." Richard Lindsay, The Times Higher Education Supplement "The reader is certain to learn new facts about wetlands structure and function and to gain new insights into the importance of old facts as they relate to the future of these threatened landscapes."
