The present relationship between sea level and the zonation of salt marsh vegetation is discussed in terms of the salt marshes of the Essex and Kent coasts. These marshes are already decreasing in area as a result of a number of different environmental pressures, including the sinking of the land relative to the sea, at a rate of about 3 mm per year, the(More)
This study investigated the stimulatory potential of a superactive gonadotropin releasing hormone analogue in idiopathic oligozoospermia. In a double-blind trial, 19 men were randomized to receive buserelin (D-Ser(TBU)6-GnRH ethylamide) in one of two dosages or saline, twice weekly, for twelve weeks. Treatment did not lead to a significant increase in serum(More)
Throughout the world, estuaries and coastal waters have experienced degradation. Present proposed remedial measures based on engineering and technological fix are not likely to restore the ecological processes of a healthy, robust estuary and, as such, will not reinstate the full beneficial functions of the estuary ecosystem. The successful management of(More)
Managed re-alignment of sea defences is seen as the way to strengthen these by rationalising the line between land and sea and creating a buffer of inter-tidal habitat in front of them. This buffer is most commonly salt marsh which absorbs wave energy thus protecting the defences. The global area of salt marsh is in decline due to a range of issues and(More)
The appearance of this book is indeed timely: as the graph on page 3 shows, the number of articles in wetland science has increased tenfold over the last decade and the proportion of these articles which are on wetland restoration has increased from under one to over five percent of the total. For us on this side of the pond the downside is that this book(More)
