First published in 1999 , the book is based on papers given at the final workshop of a research project into the evolution of environmental regulation in Poland undertaken as part of the UKs ERSC Global Environmental Change Programme. Other invited papers focused on the development of regulatory policy in transforming economies and in the UK. Furthermore the book highlights the weakness of internal political processes in Poland and the important role played by foreign sponsored pressures whilst exsamaning the divergence between the way environmental charges are supposed to operate and the ways in which they are implemented and enforced. Topics covered include the links between privatisation and the environment, the saline water problem in Upper Silesia, enforcement of and compliance with environmental charges, air pollution in Krakow and the structure of the Polish environmental administration system.

"The book studies examples of natural capital in Poland, identifies the beneficiaries of these natural assets, and discusses ways to reimburse those who own, steward or live within these assets (such as the national parks). With its focus firmly on environmental assets, rather than disruption and crises in the Central and Eastern European environment, the author reports on a number of nature protection studies including economic valuation surveys, species reintroduction projects, and the financing of national park services. Regional and international contexts of the local natural heritage are highlighted. Tomasz Zylicz uses the example of Poland to frame wider theories and conclusions on how to preserve and enhance the natural capital in transition economies." "Political, environmental and natural resource economists and environmental scientists, as well as NGOs and policymakers will find this book illuminating reading."--BOOK JACKET.

Natural and constructed wetlands play a very important role within the landscape and their ecological services are highly valuable. Water management, including flood water retention, biomass production, carbon sequestration, wastewater treatment and as a biodiversity source are among the most important ecological services of wetlands. In order to provide these services, wetlands need to be properly evaluated, protected and maintained. This book provides results of the latest research in wetland science around the world. Chapters deal with such topics as the use of constructed wetlands for treatment of various types of wastewater, use of constructed wetlands in agroforestry, wetland hydrology and evapotranspiration, the effect of wetlands on landscape temperature, and chemical properties of wetland soils.

The dramatic, ongoing loss of species is of critical concern in environmental law. The Journal of International Wildlife Law & Policy addresses legal & political issues concerning the ways in which human beings relate to & manage wildlife species, their habitats, & the biosphere. It analyses the efficacy of international & regional wildlife treaty regimes & national legislation & regulations, the impact of judicial decisions at both the national & international level, & the interface of legal & political institutions with other sectors in society that have a substantive impact on the management & conservation of species & ecosystems. The Journal provides decision-makers with current, multi-disciplinary analysis & information, facilitating a systematic & scientific approach that minimises threats to biodiversity & natural ecosystems while furthering society s socio-economic objectives. The Journal's coverage includes the ethical, legal, socio-economic, & political implications of differing approaches to wildlife conservation, management, & utilisation, including the problems involved in defining & achieving sustainable use; the potentials for conflict & co-operation among different philosophical approaches to conservation; & the role of the development & implementation of wildlife law regimes in policy making, particularly in developing countries where biological diversity is highest. This synergistic approach furthers the objective of priority-setting at both the national & international level. Each issue includes four to six main articles; a current developments section with a review of national implementation of major international wildlife treaty regimes, information on new international & regional wildlife treaty regimes, & tracking of national legislation with comparative law implications; & an extensive book review section. The Journal assists in the drafting & implementation of laws & regulations at international, national, & local levels to effectively manage & conserve wildlife species. It highlights innovative management approaches at the national & regional level that have potential relevance for managers & policy makers in other parts of the world. It improves the colloquy between actors with differing viewpoints by providing a forum to discuss & confront issues attendant to wildlife management conservation. Its distinguished editorial board reflects its truly international nature.
