Leading UK wetland scientists present a collection of reviews and case studies dealing with British freshwater wetlands and their hydrological, hydrochemical and consequent ecological processes. The hydrological section deals with a wide range of wetland types from groundwater-fed wetlands to acid mires, explaining how hydrological procedures have been modelled and investigated for diverse wetlands. The hydrochemical articles concentrate on the dynamics of nutrients as well as important implications for the management of river water quality, the use of artificial wetlands and restoration of disturbed wetlands. The final segment suggests future research directions and synthesizes the contributors' ideas.
