Wetlands and Urbanization presents a fully integrated watershed approach to the sound scientific evaluation of the impact of landscape urbanization on wetland functions. The book associates the source of impact (landscape) with the sink (wetland), relates findings to implications for future planning and management of watersheds and provides a model for future comprehensive investigations of wetland impacts from urbanization. It shows how to measure and assess the impact of urbanization on wetlands and presents scientific approaches available for use in an integrated assessment of wetland condition. It provides guidelines for biomonitoring wetlands using multiple indicators.
