This second edition of this important and authoritative survey
provides students and researchers with up-to-date and accessible
information about the ecology of freshwater and estuarine
wetlands.Prominent scholars help students understand both general
concepts of different wetland types as well as complex topics
related to these dynamic physical environments. Careful syntheses
review wetland soils, hydrology, and geomorphology; abiotic
constraints for wetland plants and animals; microbial ecology and
biogeochemistry; development of wetland plant communities; wetland
animal ecology; and carbon dynamics and ecosystem processes. In
addition, contributors document wetland regulation, policy, and
assessment in the US and provide a clear roadmap for adaptive
management and restoration of wetlands. New material also includes
an expanded review of the consequences for wetlands in a changing
global environment.Ideally suited for wetlands ecology courses,
"Ecology of Freshwater and Estuarine Wetlands, Second Edition,"
includes updated content, enhanced images (many in color), and
innovative pedagogical elements that guide students and interested
readers through the current state of our wetlands.
