Editorial Reviews

The Marsh Ecology Research Program (MERP) was a long-term, multidisciplinary study of basic factors controlling the productivity of wetlands. This work summarizes the MERP study and presents for the first time the nutrient dynamics models that integrate all data from the study. Part I describes study design and provides background on the study's location. Part II summarizes nutrient budgets for various phases of the study, and Part III reviews individual components of ecosystems studied. Part IV discusses management implications of the study's results. Includes an appendix on sampling methods. Murkin is senior scientist with the Institute for Wetland and Waterfowl Research of Ducks Unlimited Canada. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
From The Critics
As a result of decades of conservation research we now understand the basic underlying value and fundamental necessity of sustaining prairie wetland ecologies for the overall wellbeing of the ecosystem, with implications for wildlife habitation, and the impact of human activity (including agriculture) upon natural resources. Henry R. Murkin, Arnold G. van der Valk, and William R. Clark have successfully collaborated in summarizing the findings of the Marsh Ecology Research Program (MERP) in Prairie Wetland Ecology: The Contribution Of The Marsh Ecology Research Program, which also reflects the contributions from ten field experts. . This comprehensive and long term prairie wetlands research project was a joint effort of Duck Unlimited Canada and the Delta Waterfowl and Wetlands Research Station. Prairie Wetland Ecology is a superb and highly recommended introduction to prairie wetland ecology research in general, and MERP in particular, as well as providing a superbly informative background for further ecosystem research.
