So definitive that the first edition was quoted in Congressional testimony on wetland protection, Wetlands provides an extensive overview of virtually every type of saline and freshwater wetland in North America. The authors cover chemistry, biology, geology, hydrology, geography, management, and preservation of tidal salt marshes and mangrove wetlands; northern peatlands and bogs; freshwater marshes, southern deepwater swamps, and riparian wetlands. New coverage includes the latest principles, approaches, techniques, and design aspects for constructing or restoring wetlands for habitat replacement.

The book every wetland professional needs, now completely revised and updated
In many respects, this Third Edition of Wetlands is an entirely new book. While the authoritative coverage of its earlier editions has been retained, an enormous body of new material has been added, and every chapter has been revised to keep pace with rapid growth in scientific knowledge and important innovations in wetland ecology and management. Now in a larger, easier-to-read format, this wetland "bible" offers expanded coverage of everything from the role of crabs in mangrove swamps to the role of wetlands in global climate change.
