Abstract : The project aims at the documentation and synthesis of a compilation of European literature on wetland soil and biological processes, complementary to a review of American literature by WES. In total, 317 appropriate publications have been selected, and recorded in a database according to the WES "Matrix of Information on Critical Wetland Soil, Vegetation and Biological Processes". All records are characterized with some remarks. Most of the records deal with nutrient (C, N, P, S) cycling and tolerances of plants to wetland soil conditions (viz. low redox potentials and salinity). A synoptic overview of the main processes described in the selected papers, as well as the methods used to study these processes, is presented in a number of paragraphs. To each paragraph a short reference list is added.

Descriptors :   *WATER, *ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT, *SOILS, *WETLANDS, DATA BASES, EUROPE, METALS, BIOLOGY, SYNTHESIS, REPORTS, NUTRIENTS, DOCUMENTS, RECORDS, METHANE, SALINITY, VEGETATION, DECOMPOSITION, OXIDATION REDUCTION REACTIONS, PHOSPHATES, ANOXIA, NITRIFICATION.
