Richly illustrated and packed with numerous examples, this unique global perspective introduces wetland ecology from basic principles to advanced applications. Thoroughly revised and reorganised, this new edition of this prize-winning textbook begins with underlying causal factors, before moving on to more advanced concepts that add depth and context. Each chapter begins with an explanation of the basic principles covered, illustrated with clear examples. More difficult concepts and exceptions are introduced only once the general principle is well-established. Key principles are now discussed at the beginning of the book, and in order of relative importance, enabling students to understand the most important material without wading through complex theory. New chapters on wetland restoration and wetland services draw upon practical examples from around the world, providing a global context, and a new chapter on research will be particularly relevant to the advanced student planning their own studies.

This is a very comprehensive book, covers many types of wetlands and has examples from different parts of the world.

I haven't finished it yet as its like a college text, alot to read, I'm up to Chapter 8 and I feel like I know more about wetlands than many people I work with who are Environmental Scientists with biology degrees.

This text rivals the best ever produced on the subject. I've got them all so I know. Keddy does a very competent job thoroughly covering the subject while not getting overly bogged down into too many tangents.

Assembly rules....."Filters".....ecological/environmental/ physical/ chemical/organism-to-organism interactions.....are all here and presented in a very logical and clear thought process...... Reader has to think while reading to get the most out of this presentation....But, what would you expect?! Well done Dr. Keddy.
