Continuing the tradition of excellence established by the first edition, the Second Edition of Applied Wetlands Science and Technology provides the fundamentals for delineating, identifying, and regulating wetlands. It covers functions and values, ecological assessments, and how to minimize negative impacts on wetlands. The book also presents essential information on wetland creation, enhancement, restoration, and monitoring. Selected management topics include designing and managing wetlands for wildlife, managing coastal marshes, and wetlands education.

Three new chapters in the Second Edition:

Wetlands Mitigation Banking-discusses the purpose, policy, and technology of mitigation banking

Watershed Management-covers the most current remediation technology as it pertains to wetlands

Managing Global Wetlands-describes the classification and management of wetlands throughout the world

Written by wetland professionals, this indispensable guide furnishes extensive information on how wetlands function, how they can be protected, and how they can be managed. Recognizing that each and every situation is unique and requires specific solutions, Applied Wetlands Science and Technology, Second Edition focuses on providing guidelines for effective decision making.


"…provides an excellent overview of wetlands science, protection, management, and education. It would serve as a useful book for students, teachers, and professionals involved in wetlands use, protection, and management."
