Ecological engineering & ecosystem-based management

Ecological engineering is the practice of designing and creating systems with benefits for both humans and nature. As the recognition of wetlands as crucial providers of valuable ecosystem services grows, feedback from methane emissions raises concerns. Research on management practices minimizing this feedback while preserving or even increasing perceived benefits should guide management practices under a climate and land-use change scenario.
