      Wading Right In: Discovering the Nature of Wetlands
Where can you find mosses that change landscapes, salamanders with algae in their skin, and carnivorous plants containing whole ecosystems in their furled leaves Where can you find swamp trompers, wildlife watchers, marsh managers, and mud mad scientists In wetlands, those complex habitats that play such vital ecological roles In Wading Right In, Catherine Owen Koning and Sharon M Ashworth take us on a journey into wetlands through stories from the people who wade in the muck Traveling alongside scientists, explorers, and kids with waders and nets, the authors uncover the inextricably entwined relationships between the water flows, natural chemistry, soils, flora, and fauna of our floodplain forests, fens, bogs, marshes, and mires Tales of mighty efforts to protect rare orchids, restore salt marshes, and preserve sedge meadows become portals through which we visit major wetland types and discover their secrets, while also learning critical ecological lessons The United States still loses wetlands at a rate of 13,800 acres per year Such loss diminishes the water quality of our rivers and lakes, depletes our capacity for flood control, reduces our ability to mitigate climate change, and further impoverishes our biodiversity Koning and Ashworth s stories captivate the imagination and inspire the emotional and intellectual connections we need to commit to protecting these magical and mysterious places.
