The Science and Practice of Ecological Restoration

Tidal Marsh Restoration

A Synthesis of Science and Management

Editors: Roman, Charles T., Burdick, David M. (Eds.)

  • The research studies and management experience of marsh restoration in the New England/Atlantic Canada region are arguably the greatest concentration of information on this subject available, and this book will be the first synthesis and interpretation of this information for a broad professional and academic audience
  • The combination of scientists and practitioners makes the volume particularly valuable for people around the world working on salt marsh restoration
  • The importance of salt marsh ecosystems as biologically productive systems and the relative paucity of available information on effective restoration mean that this book will be of great interest to the target audience

About this book

Tidal Marsh Restoration provides the scientific foundation and practical guidance necessary for coastal zone stewards to initiate salt marsh tidal restoration programs. The book compiles, synthesizes, and interprets the current state of knowledge on the science and practice of salt marsh restoration, bringing together leaders across a range of disciplines in the sciences (hydrology, soils, vegetation, zoology), engineering (hydraulics, modeling), and public policy, with coastal managers who offer an abundance of practical insight and guidance on the development of programs.

The book is an essential work for managers, planners, regulators, environmental and engineering consultants, and others engaged in planning, designing, and implementing projects or programs aimed at restoring tidal flow to tide-restricted or diked salt marshes.

About the authors

Roman earned a B.S. in resource development from the University of Rhode Island, an M.A. in botany from Connecticut College, and a Ph.D. in marine studies from the University of Delaware. He serves on editorial boards for several professional journals and on several executive committees, including the New England Estuarine Research Society. He is the author of more than sixty articles and reports pertaining to his research on coastal ecosystems and has coedited a book on estuaries.

Burdick earned a Ph.D. in Marine Sciences from the Louisiana State University in 1988 and a B.S. in Chemistry, cum laude, from the Hobart College in 1977. Among others he is active in the Executive Committee of the Masters Program in Environmental Education; Steering Committee of the Salt Marsh Restoration Group, Global Program of Action Committee; as Treasurer of the New England Estuarine Research Society; in the Technical Advisory Board of the Great Bay Coast Watch; as Panel member, CAL FED - Estuarine Restoration Program; and in the Advisory Committee, of the Education and Outreach Program, Restore America's Estuaries. He has (co-)authored/edited a lot of publications.
