Wetlands Ecology and Management is an international journal that publishes authoritative and original refereed articles on topics relevant to freshwater, brackish and marine coastal wetland ecosystems. The journal serves as a multi- and interdisciplinary forum for key issues in wetlands science, management, policy and economics. Wetlands Ecology and Management encourages the exchange of information between environmental managers, pure and applied scientists, and national and international authorities on wetlands science, policy and ecological economics. The journal's unique Wetlands Management website provides free access to recent papers on the issues, methods and impacts of wetlands management, a particularly valuable resource for those involved in resource management and applied research. Besides original research papers, discussion papers and short reports, the journal occasionally includes invited review papers on topical subjects.
