Peter T. Flawn Series in Natural Resource Management and Con #4: Wetland and Riparian Areas of the Intermountain West: Ecology and Management

Peter T. Flawn Series in Natural Resource Management and Con #4: Wetland and Riparian Areas of the Intermountain West: Ecology and Management Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Wetlands and riparian areas between the Rocky Mountains and the Sierra Nevada are incredibly diverse and valuable habitats. More than 80 percent of the wildlife species in this intermountain region depend on these wetlands--which account for less than 2 percent of the land area--for their survival. At the same time, the wetlands also serve the water needs of ranchers and farmers, recreationists, vacation communities, and cities. It is no exaggeration to call water the liquid gold of the West, and the burgeoning human demands on this scarce resource make it imperative to understand and properly manage the wetlands and riverine areas of the Intermountain West. This book offers land managers, biologists, and research scientists a state-of-the-art survey of the ecology and management practices of wetland and riparian areas in the Intermountain West. Twelve articles examine such diverse issues as laws and regulations affecting these habitats, the unique physiographic features of the region, the importance of wetlands and riparian areas to fish, wildlife, and livestock, the ecological function of these areas, their value to humans, and the methods to evaluate these habitats. The authors also address the human impacts on the land from urban and suburban development, mining, grazing, energy extraction, recreation, water diversions, and timber harvesting and suggest ways to mitigate such impacts.

Book News Annotation:

The "Intermountain West" of the United States, an area extending roughly from the Rockies to the Pacific Range, has wetlands that are no less important to the health of the environment than the wetlands of the Midwest, yet there is relatively scant information available on them. The editors (all affiliated with the Wyoming Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unite, U. of Wyoming) present 11 papers that review current knowledge and identify areas for future research, along with one that describes the legal and regulatory environment governing wetland management decisions. Papers discuss riverine and natural and created palustrine wetlands, exploring such topics as ecological processes, management, irrigation and landscape patterns, wildlife use, and classification and monitoring of ecosystems.
