Wetlands: Functioning, Biodiversity Conservation, and Restoration (2006), edited by Bobbink et al, gives a broad and well-integrated overview of recent major scientific results in wetland science and their applications in natural resource management issues. After an introduction into the field, 12 chapters contributed by internationally known experts summarize the state of the art on a particular subject.

Wetland Restoration Manual (2005), Wildlife Trusts’ Water Policy Team, a definitive work on wetland restoration, creation and management, this 16-chapter, 660-page, ring-bound manual contains all the information you will need as a conservation professional to work effectively on wetland projects.

Flood Pulsing in Wetlands: Restoring the Natural Hydrological Balance (2002), edited by Middleton, bridges the information gap between universities and the public and private sectors by presenting timely and useful research in an area of restoration where until recently, there has been very little information.

Wetlands (2000), by Mitsch and Gosselink, a wetland “bible” that offers expanded coverage of everything from the role of crabs in mangrove swamps to the role of wetlands in global climate change.

Wetland Ecology: Principles and Conservation (2000), by Keddy, draws upon a complete range of wetland habitats and geographic regions including Californian vernal pools, Amazonian floodplains and Russian peat bogs.

A Case for Wetland Restoration (1999), by Hey and Philippi, offers a pragmatic, goal-oriented approach avoids the polarization that typically characterizes the subject, while offering a wealth of useful technical information.

Wetlands: An Approach to Improving Decision Making in Wetland Restoration and Creation (1992), edited by Kentula et al, was funded by the US Environmental Protection Agency.

Wetland Creation and Restoration: The Status of the Science (1990), by Kusler and Kentula, draws upon important new information and provides the first major national assessment by region of the capacity to implement a goal of no-net-loss of wetlands.

Heroic Tales of Wetland Restoration (?), The Wetlands Conservancy, tells of 12 rural landowners, who changed their farming practices to reclaim wetlands, streams and rivers.
