Summary An understanding of environmental gradients (physical, chemical, hydrological, and biological) is a prerequisite to the delineation of wetland boundaries. Only when boundaries are determined can an appropriate buffer be established. Presenting the wide-ranging views of academicians, environmentalists, policy makers, consultants, planners, engineers, hydrologists, biologists, geochemists, ecologists, and conservationists, Wetlands: Environmental Gradients, Boundaries, and Buffers focuses on current topics and research. The book summarizes the main issues of concern with regard to future directions.
