Lake Tahoe lies in the center of the Basin, and receives flows of melting water from snow caps of the surrounding mountain peaks. The Tahoe Basin contains wetlands, swamps, deep-water habitats, aspen stands, conifer forests, and meadows which harbor over 1,300 species of plants and animals. Environmental problems in the Tahoe Basin have led to federal, state, local, and private investments in ecosystem restoration. This book elaborates on the management and restoration activities in the Lake Tahoe Basin. It also discusses restoration of several other ecosystems that include the Salton Sea in California, the Great Lakes, and the Everglades in Florida. (Imprint: Novinka)
