About this book

Coastal habitats provide the link between the land and the sea. They are dynamic, combine to form ecosystems of great complexity and provide significant areas for wildlife. Their landscapes are treasured by visitors, painters and musicians. They also provide locations for significant economic activity and are intimately bound up with fisheries, providing food and shelter for some species of commercially exploited fish stocks. The habitats themselves provide a buffer to tides and wave action, which may be particularly important in areas where relative sea level is rising and during storm periods. Managing these assets in the face of continuing pressure from human populations on a sustainable basis is a major task.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This work … focuses on the values of temperate salt marshes, problems associated with anthropogenic impacts, and methods of achieving positive changes. … The text is extremely well organized … . The wealth of information in this book comprises a valuable resource, not only for professional managers and policy makers, indeed for anyone who cares about saving these ecologically valuable land-sea interfaces. Summing Up: Highly recommended. General readers; upper-division undergraduates through professionals." (R. E. Knowlton, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (9), 2008)
