This book covers selected papers that were presented by participants at a "Wetland Invitational" held in Columbus Ohio, USA in May 2003. They are divided, by subject matter into four general categories: 1. Restoration of a large river basin and delta; 2. Long-term wetland restoration; 3. Creation of wetlands for mitigation of wetland loss; 4. Conservation and restoration of the world’s wetlands.


Researchers and wetland managers working on wetland creation, restoration or conservation, ecological engineers, hydrologists, environmental lawyers and planners
