Wetlands are a vital part of the landscape and ecology of the United States, providing food and shelter for species ranging from the beautiful wood duck to the tiny fairy shrimp.

Biebighauser also provides a number of effective strategies for initiating and improving funding for wetlands programs.Wetland Drainage, Restoration, and Repair is essential reading for all who care about and for these important ecosystems.
