Estuaries, Marshes & Mangroves

BOOKS

The Hudson River Estuary (2006), edited by Levinton and Waldman, takes a comprehensive look at the physical, chemical, biological and environmental management issues that are important to our understanding of the Hudson River.

Design Guidelines for Tidal Wetland Restoration in San Francisco Bay (2004), California State Coastal Conservancy, outlines a conceptual model of how restored marshes evolve and function based on observation and other researchers’ assessments of restored marshes.

A National Strategy to Restore Coastal and Estuarine Habitat (2002), Restore America’s Estuaries, represents a comprehensive approach to maximize the benefits derived from habitat restoration projects and to foster the coordination of federal and non-federal activities related to restoration of coastal habitat.

Restoring Wetlands at a River Basin Scale: A Guide for Washington’s Puget Sound (1997), by Gersib, establishes overall wetland restoration program goals and presents a procedure for analyzing existing information and working with local partners to restore wetlands which help solve ecological problems and meet community needs within a river basin.

Managing Oil Spills in Mangrove Ecosystems: Effects, Remediation, Restoration, and Modeling (1997), edited by Proffitt, argues that the observable acute damage following a spill may be insignificant when compared to the longer-term chronic stress induced in mangroves and the contiguous nearshore fauna and flora by the residual oil.

Restoration of an Urban Salt Marsh: An Interdisciplinary Approach (1997), edited by Casagrande, constitutes a commendable and important attempt to point the way toward identifying how damaged and degraded natural areas can be restored within the context of striving for more economically, socially, and psychologically rewarding urban neighborhoods and communities.

The Tidal Marshes of Long Island Sound: Ecology, History and Restoration (1995), edited by Dreyer and Niering, represents the culmination of several decades of work to not only protect coastal wetland resources by enforcing the regulations in the Tidal Wetlands Act, but also launching an aggressive program in marsh restoration.

Wetlands of the Central and Southern California Coast and Coastal Watersheds (1995), by Ferren et al, is the culmination of an extensive effort to provide a methodology to demonstrate the richness and importance of the depleted and often overlooked wetland resources. Yes, California not only has wetlands (!), but they are frequently unique and often provide functions and values that distinguish them from other places in North America.
