Saltmarsh Ecology (Cambridge Studies in Ecology)

by

Saltmarsh Ecology (Cambridge Studies in Ecology) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book provides a broad introduction to saltmarsh ecology, concentrating on plants, although much of the information should also be of interest to zoologists. Particular attention is given to the geographical diversity of saltmarsh vegetation and to the ecophysiological mechanisms which permit tolerance to the major challenges of high, but variable, soil salinities and of frequently waterlogged soils. The importance of saltmarshes as functioning ecosystems is discussed and issues relevant to the long-term conservation and management of saltmarshes are considered. Saltmarsh Ecology will be useful to upper level undergraduates and wetland scientists.

Synopsis:

The saltmarsh has a unique biota influenced by both the marine and terrestrial environment. In recent years considerable advances have been made in understanding the adaptation of species to this unique environment, and these are covered fully in this broad introduction to the ecology of the saltmarsh. The book devotes particular attention to the diversity of saltmarsh vegetation worldwide, its ecophysiological characteristics and its importance in functioning ecosystems.
