Australian Saltmarsh Ecology by Neil Saintilan

By Neil Saintilan

Australian Saltmarsh Ecology offers the 1st entire assessment of the ecology and administration of Australian saltmarshes. The previous 10 years specifically have visible a sustained learn attempt into this formerly poorly understood and ignored resource.
Leading specialists within the box define what's identified of the biogeography and geomorphology of Australian saltmarshes, their fish and invertebrate ecology, using Australian saltmarshes by means of birds and insectivorous bats, and the actual demanding situations of administration, together with the keep an eye on of mosquito pests, and the problem of sea-level upward push. they supply a robust argument that coastal saltmarsh is a special and demanding habitat liable to the mixed affects of coastal improvement and sea-level rise.
The e-book should be an incredible reference for saltmarsh researchers, marine and aquatic biologists, usual source managers, environmentalists and ecologists, in addition to undergraduate scholars and the layperson.
