Wetlands are important eco- systems that support vital ecological functions and provide valuable products and ser- vices for human activities. The role of wetlands in the Earth’s ecological functions has been well documented and widely accepted. Inspite of their importance, wetlands worldwide have been subjected to misuse and abuse. Large areas of wetlands have been lost, mostly to agricul- tural development, and many of the remnants are heavily degraded due to the combined effects of pollution, over-exploitation, and mismanagement. Conserving wetland resources through a better understanding of wetland ecology and the application of ecologically sound management is urgently needed.
