Wetlands combine the beauty of both aesthetic form and ecological function in a way that few other landforms can match.This book explores the creation, restoration, enhancement, and construction of designed wetlands. It provides a practical guide for wetland design on a local site-specific scale, as well as reviews the impact of wetland design projects on the environment. More than 150 key principles and practices of wetland design and planning are presented, accompanied by detailed illustrations, and case studies demonstrate the successful application of these design principles for landscape architects and land-use planners. Especially suited to a graduate level and early professional readership, this is the first book to explore both the ecological function and art of wetlands design. 225 illustrations

Robert France is an Associate Professor of Landscape Ecology at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University.Review:
“Principles of wetland-watershed planning are explained succintly and clearly...one of the few works written primarily for landscape planners and designers, the book distills technical information into practical points and presents a good selection of important case studies.”
- James Wescoat, ASLA, and David Kovacic, Landscape Architecture
“Focuses on specialized scientific material on wetlands in a way which will readily allow design professionals to apply the principles in their individual practices.”
- Southeastern Naturalist
