  • A comprehensive resource aimed at supporting the trans- and multidisciplinary research and practice which is inherent to this field
  • A readily accessible online reference which will be the first port of call on key concepts in wetlands science and management
  • Will allow multidisciplinary teams and transdisciplinary individuals to look up terms, access further details read overviews on key issues and navigate to key articles selected by experts
In discussion with Ramsar’s Max Finlayson and Nick Davidson, and several members of the Society of Wetland Scientists, Springer is proposing the development of a new Encyclopedia of Wetlands, a comprehensive resource aimed at supporting the trans- and multidisciplinary research and practice which is inherent to this field. Aware both that wetlands research is on the rise and that researchers and students are often working or learning across several disciplines, we are proposing a readily accessible online and print reference which will be the first port of call on key concepts in wetlands science and management. This easy-to-follow reference will allow multidisciplinary teams and transdisciplinary individuals to look up terms, access further details, read overviews on key issues and navigate to key articles selected by experts.
