List of Wetland Guidelines, Manuals and Legislation in SA

This is a database that the Inter-departmental Wetland Task Group put together, and it can be quite useful if you quickly want to bring up a specific report.

I’m sure there are many similar databases circulating out there, and the society members are welcome to use this one as well.

If anyone perhaps has a similar database that we could use to add to this one, or know of a report that is missing that could be added, it would great if they could let me know – Noting here that it is a database of South African methods, DSS’s, guidelines, Legislation etc, not studies on specific wetlands per se.

Many thanks,

Thanks Jackie, how often will this Db be updated?

It will be good if you can keep the updates posted here for reference :D

Hi Marc,

We thought we would try and update it annually (at the beginning of each year, with the previous years publications). It is on the DWS website as well, but would be happy to post any updates on the wetland society portal, if it would be useful. :D

Thanks,

Jackie.

Jackie, the following two would be good additions to the DB:

(2) Development of a Diatom Index for Wetland Health. MD Matlala, JC Taylor and WR Harding. Report to the Water Research Commission. Report No. KV 270/11. ISBN 978-1-4312-0111-2. November 2011.
