About this book

The Global Change Ecology and Wetlands book series will highlight the latest research from the world leaders in the field of climate change in wetlands. 

Global Change and the Function and Distribution of Wetlands highlights information of importance to wetland ecologists.  The chapters include syntheses of international studies on the effects of drought on function and regeneration in wetlands, sea level rise and the distribution of mangrove swamps, former distributions of swamp species and future lessons from paleoecology, and shifts in atmospheric emissions across geographical regions in wetlands.  Overall, the book will contribute to a better understanding of the potential effects of climate change on world wetland distribution and function.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“It begins with an examination of worldwide wetland paleohistory in order to better understand the future of wetlands as the climate changes over time. … Each part is well illustrated with photos, figures, and tables along with extensive references spanning decades. The audience … includes soil scientists, biologists, geomorphologists, engineers, and agronomists along with students in these areas. Researchers, land managers, and local, state, and federal officials will also find the book of interest. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above.” (S. G. Shetron, Choice, Vol. 50 (6), February, 2013)

“The book makes an important contribution to the understanding of wetlands vis-a-vis climate change by reviewing current knowledge of a wide range of issues. The excellent beginning promises the series to be very fruitful and valuable addition to the wetland literature.” (Brij Gopal, International Journal of Ecology and Environmental Sciences, Vol. 39 (4), 2013)
