520    "St Lucia is the world's oldest protected estuary and 
       Africa's largest estuarine system. It is also the 
       centerpiece of South Africa's first UNESCO World Heritage 
       Site, the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, and has been a Ramsar
       Wetland of International Importance since 1986. Knowledge 
       of its biodiversity, geological origins, hydrology, 
       hydrodynamics and the long history of management is unique
       in the world. However, the impact of global change has 
       culminated in unprecedented challenges for the 
       conservation and management of the St Lucia system, 
       leading to the recent initiation of a project in support 
       of its rehabilitation and long-term sustainability. This 
       timely volume provides a unique source of information on 
       the functioning and management of the estuary for 
       researchers, students and environmental managers. The 
       insights and experiences described build on over 60 years 
       of study and management at the site and will serve as a 
       valuable model for similar estuaries around the world"--
