Description

For centuries marshes, floodplains, lagoons, deltas, and other wetland systems of the world have been perceived as wasteland, obstacles to the over-riding need for agricultural and urban development. Yet wetlands are in fact home to a rich diversity of plant and animal life; their destruction has brought to the verge of extinction dozens of species of birds and other wildlife that flourish in these regions, as well as threatened the lives of hundreds of thousands of people who rely on the wetlands' resources for their very survival. Now, in "Wetlands," comes the most comprehensive coverage of these precious natural reserves - the dangers they face, and what we must do to preserve what remains of them.show more
