The wetland environment is, in many ways, physiologically harsh. Major stresses
are anoxia and the wide salinity and water fluctuations characteristic of an
environment that is neither terrestrial nor aquatic. Adaptations to this environment
have an energy cost, either because an organism's cells operate less efficiently (
conformer) or because the organism expends energy to protect its cells from the
external stress (regulator). At the cell level, all organisms have similar
adaptations, ...

INTRODUCTION One of the most striking features of wetland archaeology is,
without a doubt, the archaeological evidence that the discipline deals with.
Anaerobic conditions prevent organic materials from decaying, and, as a result,
the apparently most delicate and vulnerable artefacts remain astonishingly well
preserved. However, not all wetland environments yield the same objects. This is
not only due to preservation conditions (see Ch. 5), but to the different ways in
which areas ...

12.1 INTRODUCTION Heavy metals in wetlands have both natural and
anthropogenic sources and can be delivered by either eolian, fluvial, or tidal
sources. Once within a wetland or aquatic environment, the ability of a metal to
be transported depends on its chemical properties. The chemical properties of
metal pollutants also influence toxicity. The species of metal or metal speciation
determine the behavior in aquatic and wetland environments. Valence, the
formation of oxyanions, ...
