`This work is a very comprehensive and multidisciplinary study of Indian wetlands.... This is a valuable book for scholars and students in the field of environment, ecology, development, biology, geography, economics and anthropology... it is an invaluable resource for policy makers, environmentalists, industrialists and NGO's' - International Journal of Environmental Studies

This volume is a comprehensive and multidisciplinary study of wetlands, which unites the natural science perspective with strong social concerns and economic and other approaches in order to design a practical national wetlands conservation strategy and action plan. The contributors argue that an important part of any long-term strategy for protecting wetlands must involve local users and incorporate traditional knowledge. The book makes a strong case for the coordinated management of wetlands and outlines various social, economic and ecological indicators which can be used to assess the diverse management needs of different wetlands.
