Coastal wetlands are under a great deal of pressure from the dual forces of rising sea level and the intervention of human populations both along the estuary and in the river catchment. Direct impacts include the destruction or degradation of wetlands from land reclamation and infrastructures. Indirect impacts derive from the discharge of pollutants, changes in river flows and sediment supplies, land clearing, and dam operations. As sea level rises, coastal wetlands in most areas of the world migrate landward to occupy former uplands. The competition of these lands from human development is intensifying, making the landward migration impossible in many cases. This book provides an understanding of the functioning of coastal ecosystems and the ecological services that they provide, and suggestions for their management. In this book a CD is included containing color figures of wetlands and estuaries in different parts of the world. * Includes a CD containing color figures of wetlands and estuaries in different parts of the world.

This interdisciplinary volume comprehensively reviews recent developments in wetland science and global change. The aim is to identify gaps, problems and successes in the integration of scientific issues into lagoon and coastal wetland management. The major strength of this volume is that it integrates several fields of research including climatology, hydrology, geomorphology, ecology and biology.

The first World Fisheries Congress was held in Athens in 1992. It was divided into plenary sessions and thematic sessions. This volume comprises papers from the technical sessions and poster sessions of Theme 1 of the World Fisheries Congress. We are reminded In the Theme Overview that earth is truly the Water Planet. Our planet's water provides one of the basic requirements of life; within the context of this Congress, it provides In various forms, the habitat for aquatic species important to the basic nutrition and economy of much of the world's population. Human activities have altered, and will continue to alter, aquatic habitats - whether the changes are relatively localized or global in their magnitude and ramifications. The authors presented in this volume consider an extensive range of aquatic habitat conditions and alterations and their effects - potential or realized - on fish and fisheries. Included in the range of subjects are the effects of global pollution and global climatic change, effects of altering major river systems, changes in life-history patterns of species, the importance of freshwater riparian habitats, and restoration of altered habitats. The first volume to be published was the plenary session papers and the overviews of the six thematic sessions. The balance of the volumes as planned treat case-histories and issues specific to each of the themes (1) Conditions of the World's Aquatic Habitats (this volume); (2) Fisheries Use and Policy; (3) Protection of Biodiversity; (4) International Development; (5) Assessment Methods and Management; and (6) Aquaculture.

The contributions to this book cover a wide range of subjects from a variety of coastrelated fields, from coastal regions in Europe and beyond. They are mainly aimed at identifying urgent problems within the coastal zones of these regions and at making a contribution to their solution. Future climate-depending risks for coastal areas (e.g. erosion, flooding), their conservation and protection make up a central part of these issues of concern. With respect to the program structure a division was made according to the overall list of proposed topics into both thematic and regional topical sessions.
