This book explores the creation, restoration, enhancement, and construction of designed wetlands. It provides a practical guide for wetland design on a local site-specific scale, as well as reviews the impact of wetland design projects on the environment. More than 150 key principles and practices of wetland design and planning are presented, accompanied by detailed illustrations, and case studies demonstrate the successful application of these design principles for landscape architects and land-use planners. Especially suited to a graduate level and early professional readership, this is the first book to explore both the ecological function and art of wetlands design.
