As coastal wetlands are under a great deal of pressure from the dual forces of rising sea levels and the intervention of human populations, both along the estuary and in the river catchment, this book covers important issues, such as the destruction or degradation of wetlands from land reclamation and infrastructures, impacts from the discharge.
This book describes coastal marshes in terms of form, function, ecology, wildlife value, and management. Robert H. Chabreck's emphasis is on the marshes of the northern coast of the Gulf of Mexico (there are 5, square miles of marshland in Louisiana alone), but he also deals with marshes on the Atlantic and Pacific by: Coastal Wetlands, Second Edition: An Integrated and Ecosystem Approach provides an understanding of the functioning of coastal ecosystems and the ecological services that they provide.

Coastal Marshes. Coastal wetlands occur along marine, estuarine, and freshwater coastlines and may be influenced by tidal or wave action or by freshwater from runoff, rivers, or ground water.

Salt marshes and tidal creeks provide us with a wealth of benefits, referred to as ecosystem services, including maintaining healthy water, protecting us from flooding and erosion, providing nursery and essential habitat for commercial and recreational fisheries, and supporting recreational activities that have become part of the coastal lifestyle.
This book describes coastal marshes in terms of form, function, ecology, wildlife value, and management. Robert H. Chabreck's emphasis is on the marshes of the northern coast of the Gulf of Mexico (there are 5, square miles of marshland in Louisiana alone), but he also deals with marshes on the Atlantic and Pacific by: Coastal wetlands can store five times as much carbon as tropical forests over the long term, mostly in deep wetland soils.
The soil of mangrove forests alone may hold the equivalent of more than two years of global emissions—22 billion tons of carbon, much of which would escape if these ecosystems were lost. Teaching our children to understand conservation is an integral step to ensure our wetlands will continue to be in existence for future generations.
Use this activity book to start the discussion with your children about Louisiana's coastal wetlands and their conservation. A tidal marsh (also known as a type of "tidal wetland") is a marsh found along rivers, coasts and estuaries which floods and drains by the tidal movement of the adjacent estuary, sea or ocean.
Tidal marshes experience many overlapping persistent cycles, including diurnal and semi-diurnal tides, day-night temperature fluctuations, spring-neap tides, seasonal vegetation growth and decay, upland.
