Wetlands: Ecology, Conservation and Restoration
Raymundo E. Russo
Nova Science Publishers, 2008 - Law - 446 pages
Wetlands are lands where saturation with water is the dominant factor determining the nature of soil development and the types of plant and animal communities living in the soil and on its surface. Wetlands vary widely because of regional and local differences in soils, topography, climate, hydrology, water chemistry, vegetation, and other factors, including human disturbance. Indeed, wetlands are found from the tundra to the tropics and on every continent except Antarctica. This book brings together the latest research in field.
