Wetlands Management Series

After many years of hard work, the products of a research collaboration between the Water Research Commission (WRC) and SANBI on wetland rehabilitation are now available in hard copy and electronically. A multidisciplinary research team led by Prof Fred Ellery has produced a set of eleven publications focusing on different elements of wetland rehabilitation. These manuals, which have application far beyond just rehabilitation, will assist users to achieve well-informed and effective wetland management and rehabilitation.

What the WET-Management Series offers
The series of wetland management and rehabilitation tools (individually mentioned in brackets) offer a sound scientific basis for planning, implementing and evaluating wetland rehabilitation, providing guidelines to:
• Develop an overall planning framework (WET-RehabPlan); Assessing the condition of catchments and individual wetlands (WET-Health);
• Assessing the functions and values of individual wetlands (WET-EcoServices);
• Evaluating the need for rehabilitation (WET-Prioritise and WET-Legal);
• Identifying why wetlands degrade and what rehabilitation interventions are appropriate (WET-Origins and WET-RehabMethods);
• Guiding the selection and implementation of rehabilitation methods (WET-RehabMethods); and
