    schema:description ""Tropical Freshwater Wetlands deals with the sustainable management of some of the most valuable environmental assets available to developing countries, i.e. floodplains, marshes, swamps and shallow water bodies." "This reference book is a guide aimed at those who are interested in development or natural resources management planning at the subnational level. The main types of tropical freshwater wetlands are described, their value is highlighted, and human intervention and its impact on wetlands are reviewed. A general approach to, and guiding principles for, the sustainable management of these particular ecosystems are then proposed. Finally, sources of expertise and further information are indicated." "The practical character of Tropical Freshwater Wetlands is enhanced by thirteen case studies in which seventeen specialists report on wetland management 'in the field', a literature list including some 9000 entries, data on more than 150 experts, and a system of indexes facilitating access to information and know-how." "Together, these features make Tropical Freshwater Wetlands the first publication of its kind."--Jacket."@en ;
