Coastal wetlands are among our most important fish and wildlife habitats. For example, over two-thirds of our recreationally and commercially important marine fishes depend on coastal marshes and associated waters for nursery and spawning grounds. This book is arranged in four major sections: (1) Coastal Wetland Ecology: A General Overview, (2) Identification of Coastal Wetland Plants, (3) Wetland Plant Descriptions and Illustrations, and (4) Places to Observe Coastal Wetlands, and (5) Sources of Other Information. In addition , a list of references used in preparing this book and a glossary of technical terms are provided.

The Wetlands Field Guide is intended to familiarize the reader with the flora and fauna, with the genetic adaptations they have made to survive the adverse, abiotic conditions, including wind, soil conditions, temperature, and salt spray. The procedure employed for the illustrations of the wetlands is called a biological transect. Starting from the waters edge, a twenty-five-meter line is employed. A one-meter square frame is placed at the twenty-five-meter mark. The most common floras within the one square meter are photographed for further identification. This process is continued every twenty-five meters to high ground, which is commonly inhabited by the common reed, pine, cedar, and oak species in the northeast hemisphere. The vegetational distribution of plants may vary or overlap in each zone. The illustrations included are the ones that most frequently occupy that zone. Also included with the flora are the descriptions of common invertebrates found in the wetter zones. The procedure of the transect may be reversed, which means they will start from high ground and work their way down to the salt marsh community. It is hoped that this publication will be useful to teachers, laymen, and students so that they may be aware of the genetic adaptations that both flora and fauna have made to survive the adverse conditions of the marine environment.

This practical field guide describes and illustrates in colour 90 common and widespread wetland plants found in Queensland, and gives a distribution map for each species. To assist those readers who are keen to learn more, the book includes a series of keys to help identify those species that are not illustrated in the book but which may be encountered in the field. The keys also help to identify closely related species. There is also a glossary of technical terms. Creating artificial wetlands for the treatment of wastewater and rehabilitating wetland areas that have been disturbed by roads, bridges, mining, housing and other infrastructure developments requires the use of a range of plant species. Wetland Plants of Queensland is an invaluable resource for all those involved in the reclamation of wetlands or the treatment of wastewater, including farmers, environmentalists and all those with an interest in wetland revegetation.
