2, the ‘saltmarsh squeeze’). The deliberate reversal of enclosure in estuaries is known as ‘managed realignment’ in the UK and ‘re-integration with the sea’ in Germany. This is a process, which includes flooding of previously defended land, in an attempt to encourage the re-creation of tidal land (Leggett et al. 2004). It is normally associated with sea-defence issues, but also has important implications for nature conservation. It forms part of the discussion in Chapter 6, on saltmarsh restoration.
In the past, developers, politicians and the public were at best indifferent to the loss of the habitats and species or at worst actively engaged in their destruction. This situation changed as the interest in the principles of nature conservation developed and perhaps more importantly, with the recognition of the ‘value’ of some of these habitats and ecosystems to the socio-economic well-being of human society. Undoubtedly, some of the greatest losses in absolute terms have been in the coastal wetlands of the USA.
The first European settlers exported the practice to the eastern USA. Here extensive Spartina spp. dominated marshes were a significant source of fodder for their animals (Daiber 1986). In the nineteenth century, saltmarshes in Nova Scotia were dyked in order to grow hay essential to maintain the horse-powered logging and mining industry. By the early 1900s, large tracts of coastal marshes were devoted to this activity. By the late 1930s, the hay market had all but ceased because of fossil-fuel technology (Nova Scotia Museum of Natural History, undated).
