   Introduction   

The word “wetland” is derived from the combination of two independent words -‘wet’ and ‘land’ which primarily gives the idea of a land saturated with water, that is  home to certain plants and “animals. They are among the world's most productive environments; cradles of biological diversity that provide the water and productivity upon which countless species of plants and animals depend for survival. Wetlands are rich in biodiversity and play an important role in the natural environment. They are considered to be major structural components of littoral habitats, acting as shelters, nesting and feeding grounds for fish and birds. However, wetlands are often perceived as sinks or storage areas for nutrients, metals and pesticides. Widespread contamination and toxic effects of pesticides in water, soil, air, humans and wildlife have been of great concern. Wetlands provide many societal benefits: food and habitat for fish and wildlife, including threatened and endangered species; water quality improvement; flood storage; shoreline erosion control; economically beneficial natural products for human use; and opportunities for recreation, education, and research. Wetland degradation is considered as devastating for the environment since degraded wetlands could not only lose their ability to perform their valuable functions but may also damage other interconnected ecosystems (Mitsch and Gosselink, 2000). Loss of small wetlands would have great environmental impacts and it is critical that the few remaining wetland that are healthy need to be protected and conserved as these ecosystems have stable communities that tolerate chronic pollutants. Thus, contaminants accumulated in the organisms from these lakes can be uniquely related to atmospheric deposition in these areas. Wetland also helps to reduce different types of pollutants, although they contribute significantly to the Global warming.

   Objective   

The major objective of current edited book is to highlight the wetland conservation and current scenario of existing wetland with importance of inland wetland. They inventory of Biological wealth in these wetlands is a prime requirement in these times. The conservation of wetland is critical and most importantly to retain the wetland and protect them in situ. 

   Target Audience   

The target audience will be professionals and researchers working in the field of ecological management and wetland conservation in various disciplines, e.g. life sciences, aquatic environment pollution, thermal pollution, environmental pollution, industries, environmental sciences, ecology & biodiversity, etc. Moreover, the book will provide deep understanding to the executives concerned with the management of wetland, status, monitoring information, trophic status index, productivity, NPV, ecological health and strategy development in different types of wetland conservation practices. The strategies covered in this book can be applied in situ, depending on the wetland in which they will be applied. It covers the most cost-effective techniques in conservation of wetland technologies and the most cutting-edge research on monitoring of wetland health and its applications.
