Praise for the previous editions of Wetlands:
"Wetlands, the field of study, would not be what it is without Wetlands, the book."
"The Third Edition of this highly successful book manages to set new standards in presentation and content to confirm its place as the first point of reference for those working or studying wetlands."
"This book is the wetlands bible...the most wide-ranging [book] on the subject."
"The single best combination text and reference book on wetland ecology."
"First on my list of references to recommend to someone new to wetland policy management or science."
For more than two decades, William Mitsch and James Gosselink's Wetlands has been the premier reference on wetlands for ecologists, land use planners, and water resource managers worldwide—a comprehensive compendium of the state of knowledge in wetland science, management, and restoration.
Now Mitsch and Gosselink bring their classic book up to date with substantial new information and a streamlined text supplemented with a support web site. This new Fourth Edition maintains the authoritative quality of its predecessors while offering such revisions as:
