Welcome to this on-line supplement to Wetland Ecology: Principles and Conservation by Dr. Paul Keddy.

These supplements provide an opportunity to expand and deepen your understanding of wetland ecology.  For each of the topics linked below, there is an additional figure, an external link, a short essay, a free download, a photograph, or some other hidden surprise. This is a work in progress, and the supplements will grow with time. I do my best to keep the links up to date, but people keep changing their web sites and so links get lost.  If you find a missing link, let me know.
