Part of the Ecological Studies book series (ECOLSTUD, volume 28)


During the history of mankind, people of all periods and races have attempted to draw clear-cut boundaries between land and water in the landscapes they inhabited. A balanced mosaic of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems has always been regarded as an ideal pattern providing both safe and productive habitats for populations of the species Homo sapiens L. People have always feared undefined transitions between land and water, various kinds of wetlands and marshes, whose great ecological importance is only now becoming acknowledged.
