Bill Streever, author of Bringing Back the Wetlands and numerous technical articles about wetland restoration and creation, worked for two years to bring together this collection of papers. Authors ranging from private landowners to government managers to scientists present regional overviews, case studies, and discussions of various issues. Regional overviews cover areas as small as the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands to areas as large as Australia and Africa. Case studies range from relatively small projects, such as rehabilitation of damage caused by wheel ruts in the high arctic, to much larger projects, such as attempts to rehabilitate thousands of hectares of Northern Territory wetlands in Australia. Seedbank ecology, economics, remote sensing, community involvement, the role of the wetland consulting industry, and other issues are discussed. In an effort to synthesize information from around the world, Joy Zedler presents a model that allows comparison of projects and may lead to better predictability of project outcomes. In An International Perspective on Wetland Rehabilitation, authors describe planting, engineered structures, prescribed flooding, excavation, and other rehabilitation methods, from Israel to New Zealand to the Netherlands and elsewhere. For the first time, one volume offers an impression of the magnitude and diversity of the field of wetland rehabilitation around the globe.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`This edited volume paints, in remarkable detail, the broad spectrum of wetland rehabilitation efforts world-wide, at the same time illustrating the ecological principles that operate in wetlands and affect wetland response to conservation efforts.'
Jan Keough, President, Society of Wetland Scientists
`In the words of one of the authors, much of the most valuable data on wetland rehabilitation never gets published. This volume brings together data and analyses of wetland rehabilitation from around the world. It will be invaluable to practicing wetland scientists.'
John Teal, author of Life and Death of the Salt Marsh
`An International Perspective on Wetland Rehabilitation is a timely addition to wetlands literature. Wetland managers, scientists and practitioners around the world will find this publication provides a very useful insight into wetland restoration and creation at the international level.'
Kevin L. Erwin, Ecologist and Wetland Restoration Specialist, Group Coordinator for Wetlands International
`This is an excellent book, with an excellent collection and selection of material covering the most significant aspects of wetland rehabilitation on a worldwide scale. It demonstrates that no universal strategy or decision which may be succesfully applied to wetland rehabilitation in different natural, environmental and socio-economic conditions can be established. Nevertheless, the book provides invaluable information for environmental scientists, managers, engineers, planners and decision-makers, students and the general public. It contributes significantly to the more thorough understanding of various aspects of the wetland rehabilitation problem, as well as to promoting the international exchange of information and experience concerning wetland rehabilitation.'
Bulletin, 50:4 (2001)
