Bill Streever, author of Bringing Back the Wetlands and numerous technical articles about wetland restoration and creation, worked for two years to bring together this collection of papers. Authors ranging from private landowners, government managers to scientists present regional overviews, case studies, and discussions of various issues. Case studies range from relatively small projects, such as rehabilitation of damage caused by wheel ruts in the high Arctic, to much larger projects, such as attempts to rehabilitate thousands of hectares of Northern Territory wetlands in Australia. Seedbank ecology, economics, remote sensing, community involvement, the role of the wetland consulting industry, and other issues are discussed. In an effort to synthesise information from around the world, Joy Zedler presents a model that allows comparison of projects and may lead to better predictability of project outcomes.
For the first time, one volume offers an impression of the magnitude and diversity of the field of wetland rehabilitation around the globe.
Apart from minor bumps to the top corners of the glossy, laminated boards, also slight handling marks to text block edges, the book is in fine, almost mint, condition. Text block tight, all text clear as are the b/w maps, diagrams and a few small photographs.
