Description

The problem of disappearing wetlands needs to be addressed immediately, and this book provides an easily understood step-by-step guide to creating conditions in which wetland plants will thrive. Drawing together a wealth of information from different sources, the author covers such topics as erosion, construction machinery, plant selection, vermin and water birds. Although the book specifically focuses on the restoration needs in Australia where enormous areas of wetlands have been drained, polluted and impoverished, the ideas and specific instructions have worldwide applications.
