'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
