Chris Craft publishes new book on wetland restoration

Prof. Chris Craft with his new book at Sapelo Island, site of much of his work.

Indiana University Professor and UGAMI Faculty Affiliate, Christopher Craft, has just published a new book titled Creating and Restoring Wetlands: From Theory to Practice. Given the challenges and opportunities facing wetlands in the coming century, this book will undoubtedly become an essential tool for restoration practitioners.

Publishing a book of this magnitude is a monumental achievement.  But Chris is quick to credit the UGAMI scientists who came before him for creating this field and building the foundation on which his research is based.

So now, whereas the rest of the world knows him as “that famous scientist who wrote the text book,” we just know him as “Chris, our good-natured colleague who is devoted to mentoring students, loves Sapelo Island, and has a weakness for oysters.”  Congratulations, Chris!
