"An exciting new wetlands book with an international flavor that provides a synthesis of basic and applied research. Written by experts in the field the volume focuses on ecosystem processes, plant and animal ecology and wetland restoration."Curtis J. Richardson, Director of the Duke University Wetland Center.
"An excellent interdisciplinary team provides a fresh synthesis that has continuity among chapters, is refreshingly honest and cautionary, and is responsive to societal pressures and opportunities. A road forward from society's dismal swamp of past behaviors and missed opportunities."R. Eugene Turner, Louisiana State University
"There's everything here from biogeography, climate change, wetland soils and hydrology to descriptions of wetland types and their biota viruses, bacteria, all the way up to the charismatic megafauna and megaflora, to chapters on wetland regulation and policy, restoration, and biodiversity."Stephen Threlkeld, University of Mississippi
