    Because of urbanization, economic growth, industrialization, and increasing population, more wastes were discharged into nature. Wetlands carry through some beneficial functions in the protection of whole balance of the nature. Wetlands are ecologically sensitive systems and provide many significant services to the human by: 1. All wetlands, including those with high flows of water, tend to recycle nutrients repeatedly (Faulkner and Richardson, ). Wetlands can be sources, sinks, or transformers of nutrients. A wetland is a sink for a specific substance if it shows net retention of the substance, and it is a source if it shows net loss of the substance.

    Massachusetts Wetlands Wetlands are areas where water covers the soil, or is present either at or near the surface of the soil for at least part of the growing season. The occurrence and flow of water (hydrology) largely determine how the soil develops and the types of plant and animal communities living in and on the soil.   Praise for Wetlands, Second Edition "This book is the wetlands bible the most wide-ranging [book] on the subject."—Carl Folke, Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences (Land Use Policy) "The single best combination text and reference book on wetland ecology."—Joseph S. Larson, University of Massachusetts (Journal of Environmental Quality) "First on my list of 5/5(1).

    Wetlands provide a multitude of ecological, economic, and social benefits. They provide habitat for many organisms and are nurseries for many saltwater and freshwater fishes and shellfish. Wetlands also hold and slowly release floodwater and snow melt, recharge groundwater, act as cleansing filters, recycle nutrients, and provide recreation.
