Wetland diversity: The limits of generalization.
Generalizations are important tools in learning about complex phenomena such as wetlands. Geography teachers at all levels use generalizations in order to help students grasp the discipline's major themes. One of geography's major themes is that of place, and that includes uniqueness of place. Accordingly, it is important to recognize the diversity of wetland environments because different wetlands provide different sets of ecological functions and values to people. Successful attempts to merge the study of wetlands and geography must weave together discussion of generalizations about wetlands with attempts to foster some appreciation for wetland diversity.
