Summary

A Major Revision of the Previous Edition

Wetland Soils: Genesis, Hydrology, Landscapes, and Classification, Second Edition contains 11 new chapters and additional updates written by new authors with a broad range of related field and academic experience. This revised work augments the previous material on wetland functions and restorations, while maintaining the field-oriented focus of the first book. The reworked text includes current coverage of hydric soil field indicators, wetland soils, chemistry of wetland soils, and wetland hydrology. This book explains how wetland soils are formed, described, and identified, defines the functions they perform, and serves to assist decision-making in the field.

A specialized book specifically geared toward environmental consultants and governmental wetland regulators, the text:

  • Reviews general properties of wetland soils, including hydrology, redox chemistry, organic matter dynamics and biology.
  • Provides examples of major types of wetlands across the United States
  • Highlights USDA Hydric Soil Field Indicators, the most current and universal indicators of wetlands soils
  • Summarizes technical standards
  • Evaluates wetland functions, methods of assessment, and restoration techniques

Wetland Soils: Genesis, Hydrology, Landscapes, and Classification, Second Edition explains how wetland soils form, are described and can be identified in the field, and is an ideal resource for professionals, students, or anyone dedicated to the understanding and conservation of wetlands.
