Aquatic habitats supply a wide range of vital ecosystem benefits to cities and their inhabitants. The unsustainable use of aquatic habitats, including inadequate urban water management itself, however, tends to alter and reduce their biodiversity and therewith diminish their ability to provide clean water, protect us from waterborne diseases and pollutants, keep urban areas safe from flooding, and support recreational ecosystem services and even the aesthetic enjoyment of our world.

Aquatic Habitats in Sustainable Urban Water Management –  the result of collaboration between UNESCO’s International Hydrological Programme and its Man and the Biosphere Programme – aims at improving our understanding of aquatic habitats, related ecosystem goods and services, and conservation and sustainable use – with a special focus on their integration into urban water management. The first part of this volume reviews basic concepts and challenges in urban aquatic habitats, as well as strategies for their management integration. The second part examines technical measures related to habitats management and rehabilitation, along with their incorporation into urban planning and their role in human health. The final part looks at current urban aquatic habitat issues and practical approaches to solving them through the lens of case studies from around the globe.

Urban Water Series - UNESCO-IHP

Following from the Sixth Phase of UNESCO’s International Hydrological Programme (2002–2007), the Urban Water Series – UNESCO-IHP addresses fundamental issues related to the role of water in cities and the effects of urbanization on the hydrological cycle and water resources. Focusing on the development of integrated approaches to sustainable urban water management, the Series should inform the work of urban water management practitioners, policy-makers and educators throughout the world.

About the Author:

Sebastian Lobner is Professor for general linguistics at the University of Dusseldorf, Germany. His main research interests are linguistic semantics and cognitive linguistics.

Review:

Praise for the first edition "Understanding Semantics is an original and innovative resource for introductory courses on linguistic semantics, excelling in particular in conciseness and accessibility of presentation."Linguistics 43-2 "Lobner's book is strongly recommended and is best seen as a starting point in one's inquiry into what semantics comprises."Luna Filipovic Kleiner, Journal of Pragmatics Praise for the second edition "Sebastian Lobner deserves great credit for producing an introduction to linguistic meaning that is both accessible and thorough." Chris Lucas, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London, UK "This excellent and well-written introductory textbook provides students with easy access to the fascinating world of semantics." Klaus von Heusinger, University of Cologne, Germany "Sebastian Lobner's Understanding Semantics is a rare treat for both seasoned researchers in semantics and novices to the field, and I believe this book should be on every semantics curriculum as it has been on mine since it first appeared." Luna Filipovic, University of East Anglia, UK "Without stinting on presenting core areas of sentential logic, predication, and lexical relations, the new edition of this comprehensive survey of semantics is enhanced by three new chapters. Students will benefit from the exercises that cover the intersection of semantic and pragmatics at the lexical, sentential and cognitive levels and require seeking evidence from their own as well as typologically diverse languages." Laurel Smith Stvan, University of Texas at Arlington, USA
