Watersheds: A Practical Handbook for Healthy Water (2nd Edition)

Water is our most vital resource, yet few understand even the basics of watershed ecology. Watersheds: A Practical Handbook for Healthy Water is an engaging, informative introduction to water ecology and environmental issues. Well-suited for youth or general readers of any age, the book combines beautiful illustrations with accessible text, making it attractive as well as informative. The book explains ecological principles and environmental challenges, introduces North America's major biological regions, outlines the complexities of water and nutrient cycles, and explains the ecology of wetlands and waterways. This new edition has been updated in 2022 to reflect growing environmental challenges, such as climate change, the insidious spread of invasive species and the loss of biodiversity. The guide also includes "How Can I Help?" sections aimed at inspiring participation in efforts to restore watersheds and protect the environment. As the book explains, what's good for one's local watershed is also good for the planet - so we can all help protect and restore our natural environment.
