A high-level case-study reference volume, this book adds to the body of knowledge on how wetlands affect the environment. Using evidence collected from studies on the Trebon Basin biosphere reserve, the book covers the key role of wetlands, ecological consequences of fishpond management, wetlands surrounding an ancient artificial lake, mires in a marginal situation, and future prospects for wetlands. It includes bibliographic references plus indexes by author, subject and scientific name of organisms.
The book presents otherwise inaccessible information about one of Europe’s most important and well-studied wildlife areas; one that has been documented for over thirty years. It examines the information through the lens of sustainability and future prospects. The insights gained here can be applied to wetlands worldwide, both natural and constructed.
