'What do you need to know about constructed wetlands? It's probably here. The authors cover benefits, design, plantings, ecology, and more. With a target audience of upper-level students and practitioners, this extensively illustrated book does have a tendency to get into the weeds of the topic (Sample sentence: "Swans, geese, many species of ducks, and king rail eat the plant's seeds and tubers, while muskrat, beaver, and porcupine eat the tubers."). But they're wetland-friendly weeds.' Landscape Architecture Magazine
