Overview

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. Important features of this new edition include:
  • A greater emphasis (and a new chapter) on wetlands of the world
  • Expanded coverage of Canadian wetlands
  • A new chapter on wetland laws and protection
  • Improved, easy-to-read illustrations, many of them covering new material
  • New chapters on wetland creation and restoration, and treatment wetlands
  • New information and expanded coverage in every chapter
  • The latest information on gaseous emissions from wetlands
  • Updated theories and classifications of salt marshes, peatlands, forested swamps, and riparian ecosystems.

"...completely updated with sections on wetland hydrology and biogeochemistry, inland wetlands, coastal wetlands, and wetland management practices...with new material on creation and restoration of wetlands and updated U.S. regulations."

Editorial Reviews

FISH
....this is an essential reference...I unhesitatingly recommend it, especially at the remarkably good value price...
Booknews
The second edition was perhaps criticized for the quality of its illustrations, because Mitsch (natural resources and environmental science, Ohio State U.) and Gosselink (emeritus, coastal energy and environmental resources, Louisiana State U.) claim to have redrawn, for this newest edition, nearly every one. This very scholarly text has also been extensively revised with 300 new citations<-->about 40 per cent of the 1,800<-->and three new chapters, one in the introductory section and two in the section on wetland management. Because of the increasing worldwide interest in wetlands, the authors have made this edition more international, adding a chapter on wetlands outside North America and improving the chapter on North American wetlands. There is also a new section on the history of US wetlands law and protection. Expanded is the section on wetland creation and restoration for purposes of habitat replacement and water pollution control. A glossary, bibliography, list of wetland web sites, and useful conversion factors are featured. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
