New publication on Freshwater Ecosystems in Protected Areas

pittock book
A new book on Freshwater Ecosystems in Protected Areas: Conservation and Management, is edited by C. Max Finlayson, Angela H. Arthington and Jamie Pittock, and published by Routledge as part of their Series, Earthscan Studies in Water Resource Management.

Freshwater ecosystems have the greatest species diversity per unit area. This book shows that, rather than a marginal part of protected area management, freshwater conservation is central to sustaining biodiversity. The book focuses on better practices for conserving inland aquatic ecosystems in protected areas (PAs), including rivers, wetlands, swamps, other brackish and freshwater ecosystems, and coastal estuaries. With an international authorship of 32 authors for 14 chapters, the book moves from describing the basic concepts of freshwater ecosystem types and ecological principles, through to defining the characteristics of freshwater protected areas, the threats they face, before discussing how to best manage them at catchment scale, and within the global landscape, and with the perspective of climate change.
