Responding to the growing importance of, and interest in, wetland ecosystems, here is a complete introduction to wetland ecosystem types and modeling. Drawn from Bill Mitsch's encyclopedic Wetlands, this text provides a basic introduction to ecosystems, wetland ecosystems, and systems ecology and modeling. Revising original chapters and adding new content to include the latest research finding and regulatory requirements, the book presents in-depth coverage of the seven dominant wetland ecosystem types found worldwide. With foundational information on every aspect of wetland ecosystems, this is an ideal supplemental text for advanced courses as well as introductory ecology courses.

Exchange of water, heat and other energy components between wetlands and the lower portion of the atmosphere is essential for functioning and development of these ecosystems, and for the decisions related to conservation or modification of wetlands. Transformation of the energy components by key parts of the ecosystem, such as water body and vegetated canopy, and complex exchange between the latter are often described in terms of energy fluxes. In this book, the diurnal and seasonal exchange of water, energy and heat storage is quantified, and compared across three wetland communities: reedgrass, bulrush, and open water. Total water loss is partitioned into surface evaporation and plant canopy transpiration, and examined in terms of main controlling variables. Actual, potential and equilibrium evapotranspiration rates are also examined in the framework of Penman-Monteith and McNaughton-Spriggs models, leading to an improvement in understanding the mechanisms of the water loss in wetlands. This study could be useful for professionals in Natural and Ecosystem Sciences, Hydrology, and in Natural Resources and Water Management.

Wetlands perform functions that deliver benefits to society, often referred to as ecosystem services. These ecosystem services include water supply, flood regulation, water purification, climate regulation, biodiversity, agriculture (e.g. grazing land), and amenity. A functional approach to wetland assessment enables a holistic view to be taken of the wide range of services wetlands can provide. The functional assessment procedures (FAPs) in this volume translate best available scientific knowledge into reasonable predictions of how component parts of wetlands function in different landscape contexts. They can be used to indicate the potential and priorities for management options in such areas as flood control, pollution reduction and biodiversity conservation. Functional assessment enables the user to predict the functioning of a wetland area without the need for comprehensive and expensive empirical research The FAPs therefore provide a methodology that can be used by both experts and non-experts to assess wetland functioning relatively rapidly. The volume includes an electronic version of the FAPs on CD which automates aspects of the assessment once the initial recording stage is completed. It is anticipated that the FAPs will be used by a range of individuals or organisations concerned with wetland management who wish to gain a better understanding of the processes, functions, services or benefits and potential of the wetlands for which they have responsibility. Provides a systematic methodology to evaluate how wetlands function Allows non-experts to assess wetland functioning rapidly and cost-effectively Automates aspects of the functional assessment through the accompanying CD-ROM

Wetlands are areas that are saturated with water for most periods of a season. It becomes a distinct ecosystem due to the presence of hydric soil and unique vegetation that is found there. Wetlands naturally act as barriers against floods as well as provide water sources to animals and humans. Over usage and despoiling of wetlands, which otherwise take longer time to replenish and sustain itself, have led to newer research that focuses on preservation and management of wetlands. This book brings forth some of the most innovative concepts elucidates the unexplored aspects of wetland ecosystems. It strives to provide a fair idea about this discipline and to help better understanding within this field. Scientists and students actively engaged in this field will find this book full of crucial and unexplored concepts.
