Editorial Reviews

Review

"....this is an essential reference...I unhesitatingly recommend it, especially at the remarkably good value price..." (FISH, 2000) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

Praise for the previous editions of Wetlands

"Wetlands, the field of study, would not be what it is without Wetlands, the book."
——Bill Streever, Wetlands, 2001

"The Third Edition of this highly successful book manages to set new standards in presentation and content to confirm its place as the first point of reference for those working or studying wetlands."
——Chris Bradley, University of Birmingham, UK, Regulated Rivers: Research and Management

"This book is the wetlands bible...the most wide-ranging [book] on the subject."
——Carl Folke, Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, Land Use Policy

"The single best combination text and reference book on wetland ecology."
——Joseph S. Larson, University of Massachusetts, Journal of Environmental Quality

"First on my list of references to recommend to someone new to wetland policy management or science."
——Jay A. Leitch, North Dakota State University, Water Resources Bulletin

For more than two decades, William Mitsch and James Gosselink's Wetlands has been the premier reference on wetlands for ecologists, land use planners, and water resource managers worldwide—a comprehensive compendium of the state of knowledge in wetland science, management, and restoration.

Now Mitsch and Gosselink bring their classic book up to date with substantial new information and a streamlined text supplemented with a support Web site. This new Fourth Edition maintains the authoritative quality of its predecessors while offering such revisions as:

  • Refocused coverage on the three main parts of the book: 1. An introduction to the extent, definitions, and general features of wetlands of the world; 2. Wetland science; and 3. Wetland management.

  • New chapter on climate change and wetlands that introduces the student to the roles that wetlands have in climate change and impact that climate change has on wetlands.

  • Increased international coverage, including wetlands of Mexico and Central America, the Congolian Swamp and Sine Saloum Delta of Africa, the Western Siberian Lowlands, the Mesopotamian Marshland restoration in Iraq, and the wetland parks of Asia such as Xixi National Wetland Park in eastern China and Gandau Nature Park in Taipei, Taiwan. This expanded coverage is illustrated with over 50 wetland photographs from around the world.

  • Several hundred new refer?ences for further reading, up-to-date data, and the latest research findings.

  • Over 35 new info boxes and sidebars provide essential background information to concepts being presented and case studies of wetland restoration and treatment in practice.

Format: Hardcover
I first picked this book up to consider a career as a wetland scientist (among other things) and instantly dove into the heaps of information provided. It is well written and easy to read with nicely labelled sections. I found that it had all sorts of information on the subject. It is highly useful.
To date, this is THE book to get in the field. If you get any book on the subject, this is it. I was only mildly surprised after reading through much of it to find that it's the only textbook in my graduate class on wetland ecology and management and there appears to be no competition as a textbook.
In short, it's very readable and immensely useful: A combination you can't go wrong with.

Format: Hardcover
There is no better book for learning about wetlands that I have found. Many students find hydrology difficult, but this book lays this critical process out clearly, with excellent illustrations and diagrams.

This book helps the biotic oriented student understand the abiotic processes in clear and simple language.

I will never part with my copy, and reference it often!

Format: Hardcover
This book is a must have for all wetland researchers, managers, scientists, and anyone with a general interest in wetland ecosystems. If I had to choose 1 wetland book, this is it. It is one of THE most popular textbooks for university wetland courses and workshops. I have been a wetland scientist for almost 15 years, and this is one of the books I use on a regular basis, and recommend to all my assistants and students. Wetland researchers will also want to keep in mind that with the release of the 4th edition, this 3rd edition is still a must have in your wetland library. The 4th edition removed all the wetland ecosystem specific chapters that are in this edition, so this edition is far from outdated. Don't choose one over the other! Buy them both :).

Great price because it is not the newest edition, but i think it acutally is better than the newer edition. For those who care about their students and their wallets this is the version to suggest! Nothing about it is out of date, and there is plenty of great things about the content and organization.

This text is an excellent source for all aspects of wetlands and will be used for wetland restoration. Chocked full of formulas for all types of hydrologic calculations pertaining to the wetland and riparian setting. This is one that I will keep as reference material forever. The book arrived on time and in perfect condition. Thanks.

I purchased this book for a college class called "Wetland Environments", but it is so much more than just a textbook. It's easy to understand and very informative regarding all things wetlands. I recommend this book to anyone with an interest in the topic or natural ecosystems and wildlife management in general.
