About this book

Combines a broad scientific and sociopolitical view of US wetlands, for a wide audience of students and professionals concerned with basic or applied ecology, environmental conservation and policy.

I very much enjoyed reading this book and highly recommend it to anyone interested in learning more about the scientific and policy debates concerning wetlands in the US Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology " ... a concise slim volume which acts as a great review guide to any wetland ... language is extremely accessible ... anyone interested in wetlands would do well to read this book."
