Richly illustrated and packed with numerous examples, this unique global perspective introduces wetland ecology from basic principles to advanced applications. Thoroughly revised and reorganised, this new edition of this prize-winning textbook begins with underlying causal factors, before moving on to more advanced concepts that add depth and context. Each chapter begins with an explanation of the basic principles covered, illustrated with clear examples. More difficult concepts and exceptions are introduced only once the general principle is well-established. Key principles are now discussed at the beginning of the book, and in order of relative importance, enabling students to understand the most important material without wading through complex theory. New chapters on wetland restoration and wetland services draw upon practical examples from around the world, providing a global context, and a new chapter on research will be particularly relevant to the advanced student planning their own studies.

'The first edition of this book is well known to wetland scientists and students and is a much-loved textbook. This new edition will also not disappoint, it is reorganised but retains a refreshingly relaxed ... and immensely clear style of writing while putting over complex ideas ... an excellent read and an essential tome on any wetland scientist's or student's bookshelf.' Freshwater Biology

'... [this] was the first time that [I've] read an academic book and I could recognize the voice of the author. It wasn't another neutral and empty of spirit academic book! It was like a dialog with an old friend ... about something that both love ...' Juan Calvo Cubero, Ph.D. student, East Carolina University
