Constructed wetlands: challenges and opportunities
ww
3 July 2014
Ghent University - Belgium

ww

Wetlands carry out several important tasks in the landscape, acting as natural biofilters, potential carbon sinks, and habitats for many species. Man-made wetlands, or constructed wetlands, exploit the processes of natural wetlands with the main objective being water purification. Helophyte filters may still be the most common type of constructed wetland, but major developments have occurred over the last decades. This symposium will focus on recent advances in scientific understanding of constructed wetlands, the remaining challenges and wide range of opportunities they may provide for utilizing landscapes in a better way.
