In commemoration of the Ramsar agreement, the Ecohydrology Research Group and University of Waterloo invites you to attend an evening public lecture by Dr. Jos Verhoeven, Professor Emeritus from Utrecht University in the Netherlands.
"Reclaiming, using, and protecting wetlands, how the Dutch created The Netherlands"
The Netherlands is the common delta of three major rivers. Originally a vast expanse of salt marshes, flood plains, swamps and large bogs, the Dutch began to live there on dwelling mounds 2000 years ago. With vast areas of original wetland wilderness, the Dutch have reshaped it into their minutely controlled country, with continuous innovations in ways to control and make use of these lands.
Professor Verhoeven is an expert on the diversity and functioning of wetland ecosystems. He is the president of the European Chapter of the Society of Wetlands Scientists and sits on the executive board of the International Association of Ecology.
