Paul Keddy's Wetland Ecology is quite simply one of the best books about wetlands that exist today. It should be required reading for wetland managers. Jeanne Christie, The Compleat Wetlander

Paul Keddy's Wetland Ecology is quite simply one of the best books about wetlands that exist today. Jeanne Christie, The Compleat Wetlander. Keddy makes use of his own keen insights and his extensive knowledge of the literature to provide a broad view of ecological interactions in wetlands, replete with selected examples to give details. He ties together the pieces, poses the important questions, and explores the answers.

Paul A. Keddy, the first holder of the Schlieder Endowed Chair for Environmental Studies at Southeastern .

He has published more than 100 scholarly papers on plant ecology and wetlands, as well as serving organizations such as NSF, NSERC, World Wildlife Fund and The Nature Conservancy.

These themes include basic characteristics of wetlands, key environmental factors that produce wetland community types and some unifying problems such as assembly rules, restoration and conservation.

Richly illustrated and packed with numerous examples, this unique global perspective introduces wetland ecology from basic principles to advanced applications. Thoroughly revised and reorganised, this new edition of this prize-winning textbook begins with underlying causal factors, before moving on to more advanced concepts that add depth and context. Each chapter begins with an explanation of the basic principles covered, illustrated with clear examples. More difficult concepts and exceptions are introduced only once the general principle is well-established. Key principles are now discussed at the beginning of the book, and in order of relative importance, enabling students to understand the most important material without wading through complex theory. New chapters on wetland restoration and wetland services draw upon practical examples from around the world, providing a global context, and a new chapter on research will be particularly relevant to the advanced student planning their own studies.
  • This is a very comprehensive book, covers many types of wetlands and has examples from different parts of the world.

    I haven't finished it yet as its like a college text, alot to read, I'm up to Chapter 8 and I feel like I know more about wetlands than many people I work with who are Environmental Scientists with biology degrees.

  • This text rivals the best ever produced on the subject. I've got them all so I know. Keddy does a very competent job thoroughly covering the subject while not getting overly bogged down into too many tangents.

  • Assembly rules....."Filters".....ecological/environmental/ physical/ chemical/organism-to-organism interactions.....are all here and presented in a very logical and clear thought process...... Reader has to think while reading to get the most out of this presentation....But, what would you expect?! Well done Dr. Keddy.

  • Great wetlands book. I have been able to use for school and after I graduated at work. Has been very useful

  • The best book out there on this topic. Well- written and edited. Very detailed, yet highly readable.

  • Got it for a wetlands class. Has good info in it.
