About the Authors
  • World wetlands are endangered by human activities and development in all parts of the world. This book approaches the study of wetlands management and development policy by using integrated ecosystem modelling that draws on insights from hydrology, ecology and economics. The authors devote particular attention to the spatial dimension, the development of a set of complementary indicators, and the aggregation and evaluation of information.

    • Integrated modelling approach that combines elements from hydrology, ecology and economics
    • Emphasises the spatial dimension, complementary indicators, and evaluation
    • Presents a detailed case study of the Vecht area in the Netherlands which illustrates general principles of integrated ecosystem management
