It is divided into estuarine and freshwater systems, which may be further subdivided by soil type and plant life into bogs, swamps, and e wetlands have poor drainage, the area is characterized by sluggish or standing water that can create an open-water habitat for wildlife.

Wetlands are among the world’s most valuable and most threatened habitats, and in these crucially important ecosystems, the invertebrate fauna holds a focal position.

Most of the biological diversity. About this book. Forty-two chapters by international experts from a wide range of disciplines make The Wetlands Handbook the essential tool for those seeking comprehensive understanding of the subject.

Abstract. Wetlands are distinctive ecosystems. They contain unique vegetation and soils, driven by patterns of hydrology—depth, duration, frequency, and seasonality of inundation or soil saturation—that create anaerobic soil conditions and that act as an environmental sieve, favoring those who can adapt and weeding out those who cannot.

The Wetland Book is a comprehensive resource aimed at supporting the trans- and multidisciplinary research and practice which is inherent to this field.

Abstract This book and this synthesis address the pressing need for better management of coastal wetlands worldwide because these wetlands are disappearing at an alarming rate; in some countries the loss is 70%–80% in the last 50 years.
