As sea point rises, coastal wetlands in so much components of the realm migrate landward to occupy former uplands. the contest of those lands from human improvement is intensifying, making the landward migration very unlikely in lots of instances. This publication presents an realizing of the functioning of coastal ecosystems and the ecological prone that they supply, and recommendations for his or her administration. during this booklet a CD is integrated containing colour figures of wetlands and estuaries in numerous elements of the world.
