Global Change and the Function and Distribution of Wetlands
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.
The first book to contribute to a world view of the potential effects of climate change on wetlandsThe chapters synthesize information to create a worldwide analysis of climate change and wetlandsThe book series will encompass many different themes over time, so will eventually become a compendium of definitive literature based on the latest research on the topicAll researchers and managers working in global change ecology and wetland ecology will want to have the entire series of books
