Wetlands occur at the interface of upland and aquatic ecosystems, making them unique environments that are vital to ecosystem health. But wetlands are also challenging to assess and understand. Wetland researchers have developed specialized analytical methods and sampling techniques that are now assembled for the first time in one volume. More than 100 experts provide key methods for sampling, quantifying, and characterizing wetlands, including wetland soils, plant communities and processes, nutrients, greenhouse gas fluxes,redox-active elements, toxins, transport processes, wetland water budgets,and more.

Wetlands provide vital ecosystem functions including but limited to increased C storage compared to adjacent uplands, water storage and filtration, and wildlife habitat. As the climate warms, wetlands are vulnerable to transformation from C sinks to sources. In an attempt to observe how warming may affect soil function, formation and biogeochemistry, three wetlands were observed along an elevation gradient in the Snowy Range Mountains of SE Wyoming, USA. Soil morphology, vegetation, hydrology, and biogeochemistry were monitored. Lower elevation, therefore warmer temperatures, were associated with more redoximorphic features in soil profiles compared to higher elevations (cooler temperatures), while high elevation soils contained higher SOC than soils at lower elevations. It is possible that temperature is a control on redoximorphic feature formation and SOC content. Additionally, this research examined Indicator of Reduction in Soil (IRIS) film methodology, specifically if pilot holes can be reused and retain accurate reduction results. This study is the first comparative analysis of first, second, and third use pilot holes to examine reduction from Mn and Fe IRIS films. In systems similar to the four sites used in this study, IRIS methodology can be expanded to reuse pilot holes for Fe and Mn IRIS films up to two times (first, second, and third use) while delivering accurate results. Monitoring wetlands to understand function and biogeochemistry is key to anticipating how ecosystem function may change as the climate warms.

A derivative of the Encyclopedia of Inland Waters, Biogeochemistry of Inland Waters examines the transformation, flux and cycling of chemical compounds in aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, combining aspects of biology, ecology, geology, and chemistry. Because the articles are drawn from an encyclopedia, they are easily accessible to interested members of the public, such as conservationists and environmental decision makers. This derivative text describes biogeochemical cycles of organic and inorganic elements and compounds in freshwater ecosystems.

"While in the Third Edition of Wetlands the authoritative coverage of its earlier editions has been retained, an enormous body of new material has been added, and every chapter has been revised to keep pace with rapid growth in scientific knowledge and important innovations in wetland ecology and management. Now in a larger, easier-to-read format, this wetland "bible" offers expanded coverage of everything from the role of crabs in mangrove swamps to the role of wetlands in global climate change. Important features of this new edition include a greater emphasis (and a new chapter) on wetlands of the world; expanded coverage of Canadian wetlands; a new chapter on wetlands laws and protection; improved, easy-to-read illustrations, many of them covering new material; new chapters on wetland creation and restoration, and treatment wetlands; new information and expanded coverage in every chapter; the latest information on gaseous emissions from wetlands; and updated theories and classifications of salt marshes, peatlands, forested swamps, and riparian ecosystems."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

This second edition of this important and authoritative survey provides students and researchers with up-to-date and accessible information about the ecology of freshwater and estuarine wetlands. Prominent scholars help students understand both general concepts of different wetland types as well as complex topics related to these dynamic physical environments. Careful syntheses review wetland soils, hydrology, and geomorphology; abiotic constraints for wetland plants and animals; microbial ecology and biogeochemistry; development of wetland plant communities; wetland animal ecology; and carbon dynamics and ecosystem processes. In addition, contributors document wetland regulation, policy, and assessment in the US and provide a clear roadmap for adaptive management and restoration of wetlands. New material also includes an expanded review of the consequences for wetlands in a changing global environment. Ideally suited for wetlands ecology courses, Ecology of Freshwater and Estuarine Wetlands, Second Edition, includes updated content, enhanced images (many in color), and innovative pedagogical elements that guide students and interested readers through the current state of our wetlands.

Submerged soils and the wetlands they support are of huge practical importance: in global element cycles, as centres of biodiversity, in global food production. They are also uniquely interesting scientifically because of their peculiar biogeochemistry and the adaptations of plants and microbes to it. This book describes the physical, chemical and biological processes operating in submerged soils and governing their properties. It describes the transport processes controlling the fluxes of gases and solutes through the soil; the interchange of solutes between solid, liquid and gas phases; reduction and oxidation processes; biological processes in the soil and overlying water; and processes in the roots and rhizospheres of wetland plants. The dynamics of nutrients, toxins, pollutants and trace gases are then discussed in terms of these processes and in relation to wetland productivity and global element cycles. Written by a renowned expert in the field, this work will be invaluable to earth, environmental and agricultural scientists concerned with natural or man-made wetlands, and to advanced undergraduate and graduate studen ts of these topics.

Wetlands are crucial ecosystems that help filter a great number of toxicants out of the earth's waters. They must be managed and occasionally even built from scratch, including all of the flora and fauna that grows there. Invertebrates play a key role in the wetland food chain. This comprehensive resource is the first dedicated solely to the ecology and management of invertebrates.

"Biogeochemistry considers how the basic chemical conditions of the Earth-from atmosphere to soil to seawater-have been and are being affected by the existence of life. Human activities in particular, from the rapid consumption of resources to the destruction of the rainforests and the expansion of smog-covered cities, are leading to rapid changes in the basic chemistry of the Earth. This expansive text pulls together the numerous fields of study encompassed by biogeochemistry to analyze the increasing demands of the growing human population on limited resources and the resulting changes in the planet's chemical makeup. The book helps students extrapolate small-scale examples to the global level, and also discusses the instrumentation being used by NASA and its role in studies of global change. With extensive cross-referencing of chapters, figures and tables, and an interdisciplinary coverage of the topic at hand, this updated edition provides an excellent framework for courses examining global change and environmental chemistry, and is also a useful self-study guide."--Publisher's website.

The purpose of the Exploring Environmental Challenges: A Multidisciplinary Approach series is to publish a collection of short texts that each explore a specific environmental issue and describe the methodologies, theories, and findings pertaining to that issue from both natural and social science perspectives. Each text contains three natural science essays, three social science essays, and a concluding essay. Intended for introductory environmental studies courses, these balanced, thoughtful, and rigorous texts aim to provide students with a deeper understanding of the relationship between people and their environment, and to serve as a foundation for further inquiry and discussion. Wetlands introduces students to the natural ecological functions and policy issues of wetlands so they will have a solid understanding of why these ecosystems are necessary and why their governance remains a significant environmental challenge. Although not a comprehensive overview on wetlands, it does provide background material for a more comprehensive investigation into the science behind and the management of these ecosystems.
