Boundaries of a wetland must be identified and located in the field by examining three parameters: wetland plants, wetland hydrology, and hydric soils. This book explains how wetland soils are formed, described, and can be identified in the field. The new edition is a major revision of the 2000 book. Written by scientists with extensive field and academic experience, it contains 11 new chapters, updates throughout, and augments the previous material on wetland functions and restorations, while maintaining the field-oriented focus of the first book.
