This book explains how with careful planning and design, the functions and performance of constructed wetlands can provide a huge range of benefits to humans and the environment. It documents the current designs and specifications for free water surface wetlands, horizontal and vertical subsurface flow wetlands, hybrid wetlands and bio retention basins; and explores how to plan, engineer, design and monitor these natural systems.

Sections address resource management (landscape planning), technical issues (environmental engineering and botany), recreation and physical design (landscape architecture), and biological systems (ecology). Site and municipal scale strategies for flood management, storm-water treatment and green infrastructure are illustrated with case studies from the USA, Europe and China, which show how these principles have been put into practice.

Written for upper level students and practitioners, this highly illustrated book provides designers with the tools they need to ensure constructed wetlands are sustainably created and well manage

MEDIA REVIEWS

`What do you need to know about constructed wetlands? It's probably here. The authors cover benefits, design, plantings, ecology, and more. With a target audience of upper-level students and practitioners, this extensively illustrated book does have a tendency to get into the weeds of the topic (Sample sentence: "Swans, geese, many species of ducks, and king rail eat the plant's seeds and tubers, while muskrat, beaver, and porcupine eat the tubers."). But they're wetland-friendly weeds.'
