Media reviews

From the reviews: "The comprehensive book represents a successful mixture of contributions valuable for scientists as well as for decision makers dealing with wetland conservation and restoration. ! the book is qualified for both, readers interested in getting a general survey of a specific topic and experts interested in picking up new detailed information. ! All in all I recommend this book particularly because ! chapters are reviews containing a lot of valuable information. The price is adequate." (Joachim Schrautzer, Phytocoenologia, Vol. 38 (1-2), August, 2008)
