Encyclopedia of Wetlands: 2016 free pdf In discussion with Ramsar's Max Finlayson and Nick Davidson, and several members of the Society of Wetland Scientists, Springer is proposing the development of a new Encyclopedia of Wetlands, a comprehensive resource aimed at supporting the trans- and multidisciplinary research and practice which is inherent to this field. Aware both that wetlands research is on the rise and that researchers and students are often working or learning across several disciplines, we are proposing a readily accessible online and print reference which will be the first port of call on key concepts in wetlands science and management. This easy-to-follow reference will allow multidisciplinary teams and transdisciplinary individuals to look up terms, access further details, read overviews on key issues and navigate to key articles selected by experts.

About Robert McInnes

Robert McInnes is an independent Chartered Environmentalist with 20 years experience in wetland-related environmental reseach, consultancy, management and conservation. Working in both the UK and internationally, Rob has experience across a variety of wetland types from upland blanket bogs to lowland floodplains and from rain-fed raised mires to coastal saltmarshes and mudflats. Specialties: Wetland-related conservation, policy, eco-hydrology, ecosystem services, constructed wetlands, SUDS, urban biodiversity and water management issues and wetland restoration Dr Mark Everard's work in all four sectors of society - private, public, academic and voluntary - has taken him across five continents to undertake applied research, policy development and capacity-building relating to the ways in which people connect with ecosystems. The author of six other books, over 50 peer-reviewed scientific papers and over 150 technical magazine articles, Mark is also a communicator on sustainability and wider aquatic matters on TV and radio. He has served on numerous government advisory and expert groups in the UK, as well as advising other governments and multinational corporations on sustainability matters. His specialty is on the water environment, land uses across the catchments that influence it, the pressures that people impose upon it and the many often unrecognised benefits that they derive from it. Mark's work includes environmental ethics and economics as a means to bring our intimate interdependencies with ecosystems into the mainstream of public awareness and government thinking.
