The traditional response to swamps, marshes and bogs has been to drain them. But wetlands are not wastelands. Coastal marshes are among the world's most productive ecosystems. Maltby examines the value of swamps and marshes, as well as the threats against them, showing how short-sighted this approach is and indicating that positive alternatives are available.
