Creating and Restoring Wetlands: From Theory to Practice describes the challenges and opportunities relating to the restoration of freshwater and estuarine wetlands in natural, agricultural, and urban environments in the coming century. The underpinnings of restoration, driven by ecological (disturbance, dispersal, succession) theory, are described and applied to various activities (restoring hydrology, soils, and biota) that are used to improve the short- and long-term success of wetland restoration projects. Unforeseen problems that hinder restoration efforts and solutions to these problems are discussed in this comprehensive book that contains five sections and 13 chapters that include an introduction describing the defining characteristics of wetland - hydrology, soils, biota, the role of theory in guiding wetland succession, ecosystem development following restoration, and differentiating wetland reclamation, restoration, and creation, restoration of various estuarine and freshwater wetlands, case studies of estuarine and freshwater restoration and large-scale restoration, and finally, the future of wetland restoration. Explicitly links ecological theory to restoration efforts in a variety of freshwater and estuarine, natural, agricultural, urban landscapes, and wetland ecosystems Contains case studies of small- and large-scale restoration activities ensuring relevance to individuals and organizations Illustrates successes as well as failures of freshwater and estuarine wetland restorations in order to learn from them Presents specific information on hydrology, biota, wetland succession, ecosystem development following restoration, and more

An Approach to Improving Decision-Making in Wetland Restoration and Creation succinctly compares populations of natural and created wetlands to determine whether restored wetlands successfully replace wetlands lost to development or other pressures. The book also presents strategies for mitigation of wetland losses, site selection for wetland restoration projects, and assessment of the level of attainable function for restored wetlands. The book is a significant resource for helping wetland professionals, planners, and ecologists formulate decisions affecting the creation and restoration of

How people perceive wetlands has always played a crucial role in determining how people act toward them. In this readable and objective account, Hugh Prince examines literary evidence as well as government and scientific documents to uncover the history of changing attitudes toward wetlands in the American Midwest. As attitudes changed, so did scientific research agendas, government policies, and farmers' strategies for managing their land. Originally viewed as bountiful sources of wildlife by indigenous peoples, wet areas called "wet prairies," "

The ability of created wetlands to function as natural systems has been questioned because most wetlands studied have been new created wetlands instead of old natural wetlands. Quantitative data were needed to verify functional equivalency in wetlands of similar ages. One natural and one created wetland was selected for each of three age classes. An additional natural 'old' wetland was added to ensure a valid comparison. Soils were evaluated for bulk density, pH, moisture content, particle size, carbon, phosphorus content,
