About the Author

Dr. Arnold van der Valk is a professor in the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Organismal Biology at Iowa State University. He has done research on a variety of wetlands in North America, Europe, Asia and South America. His primary research interests are the dynamics of wetland vegetation, wetlands as nutrients sinks, and landscape differentiation within wetlands. He has been teaching courses wetland ecology for over 30 years.


`Review from previous edition van der Valk has provided us with a great, well-balanced, educational book that deals with a very complex ecosystem. It will certainly inspire future readers to delve further into the intricacies of wetland ecosystems and motivate them to be more observant in the field.' Limnology and Oceanography Bulletin, June 2006
