Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Calcareous Mires of Slovakia : Landscape Setting, Management and Restoration Prospects presents the table of contents and a foreword. Activities to support the conservation and sustainable use of wetlands in the Carpathians and in the lowlands of central Europe are becoming prominent on the political agenda. In recent years, living peatlands (mires) have attracted much attention due to increased research on their ecology, hydrology, biodiversity and history. These activities which focused also on the sensitivity, management and restoration of peatlands, help in increasing the recognition, both regionally and nationally, of the role, value and functions of mires. They also increase the understanding of the ecosystem services that mires provide, including water regulation, biodiversity conservation and carbon sequestration. On the national level, there is an increasing effort to improve the management and sustainable use of wetlands.
