Wetlands of Ireland: Distribution, Ecology, Uses and Economic Value

Wetlands of Ireland: Distribution, Ecology, Uses and Economic Value Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ireland is famous--or notorious--for its wet and mild climate. Because on average more water precipitates than evaporates, the island is rich in wetlands: marshes, swamps, fens, bogs, lagoons, and flood-plains. Many of Ireland's place names refer to wet places. These rich ecosystems are disappearing at an alarming rate, including those in Ireland. This groundbreaking book brings together twenty-three specialists in wetland science to discuss in fifteen essays a wide range of topics, including the ecology, fauna, vegetation and distribution of various types of wetlands, wastewater management, the archaeology of wetlands, and protection and conservation.
